Description: Seeding to perennial grasses is an effective method for stabilizing soil, preventing invasion by undesirable plants, and increasing forage production on ground denuded during logging. A survey in 1948 of 52 areas seeded between 1940 and 1946 found 80 percent of the seedings to be medium or better in success, and 45 percent good or very good in success. A careful check showed no evidence that these seedings decreased subsequent regeneration to ponderosa pine.
