DescriptionIn four overused areas, the treatments of small plots were fencing, scarifying the soil, and mulching; fencing and mulching plus planting of shrubs, herbaceous plants, or greenbrier with shrubs or holly. After 3 years, soil compaction was two to four times as great in check plots as in treated plots. Understory cover varied with conditions, but because of volunteer growth, planting was not nearly so important as mulching and eliminating use in reestablishing an understory.
