Hinge cutting refers to selecting an unwanted species of tree and cutting it about 3 or 4 feet off of the ground, but only cutting it enough that it "hinges" or in other words the trunk stays attached to the tree, but it falls over and continues to stay green. This is effective in creating bedding areas, as well as diverting the deer onto a desired trail, instead of one they would normally pick.
