We describe small mammal communities that occurred as even-aged stands of northern hardwoods matured. Capture rates of 7 small mammals (southern red-backed vole [Clethrionomys gapperi], deer mouse [Peromyscus maniculatus], northern short-tailed shrew [Blarina brevicauda], woodland jumping mouse [Napaeozapus insignis], eastern chipmunk [Tamias striatus], southern flying squirrel [Glaucomys volans], and rock voles [Microtus chrotorrhinus]) were not correlated with stand age or overstory structure in 12 stands ranging from 8 to 205 years old. Species composition of the catch was similar in all stands. These 7 mammals and even-age silviculture are compatible.
