Title: Grazing on Regeneration Sites Encourages Pine Seedling Growth

Author: Ratliff Raymond D., ; Denton, Renee G.

Date: 1995

Source: Res. Paper PSW-RP-223. Albany, CA: Pacific Southwest Research Station, Forest Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture; 11 p

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Effects of season-long, deferred-rotation, and rest-rotation grazing, on ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Dougl. ex Laws.) seedling growth and herbaceous vegetation control were studied in regeneration sites at Boyd Hill, Modoc National Forest, California. Seedlings were planted in 1989. Pine seedling survival and damage did not differ, but the seedlings were significantly taller, with longer leaders with season-long grazing than without grazing. Treatment comparisons for plant group and non-plant percent cover differed only for litter and bare soil, but cover and composition of bottlebrush squirreltail (Elymus elymoides [Raf.] Swezey) were greater without grazing.

Keywords: Ponderosa pine, Pinus ponderosa, survival and damage, range condition, cattle, plantation
