When I undo C-d in Emacs I can only restore one deleted letter at a time. This is extremely inconvenient. I would like all subsequent deletions to be treated as one for undelete purposes. Is there any way to control that? I found undo-tree to be helpful, but this does not solve the problem as the undo tree gets extremely big when characters are deleted. The same goes for deletion using Backspace.

You can change the way you delete things, use C-u to group multiple delete-char events into one undo. You should also consider, where appropriate, other kill commands; kill-word M-d, kill-sentence M-k, kill-region C-w, etc.
