Description: Effects of complete removal of mesquite overstory, complete removal of mesquite overstory with control of post-treatment sprouts, and retention of the mesquite overstory as a control on herbage production are described. Mulching treatments included applications of a chip mulch, a commercial compost, lopped-and-scattered mesquite branchwood, and an untreated control. Preliminary results of this study provide an insight on the changes in herbage production as a result of mesquite overstory control and the addition of mulches.

Keywords: land stewardship, watershed management, ecosystem-based management, natural resources, conservation, sustainable development, sustainable use
