    Description

    Increasing use of remote backcountry recreation sites in the Northeast is resulting in a loss of the thin soil mantle and destruction of the ground-cover vegetation. Fencing, fertilization and liming and a combination of fencing, fertilization, and liming were tested as means of reestablishing ground-cover vegetation on bare mineral soils of the Tuckerman Ravine shelter site on Mount Washington in New Hampshire. Results indicate that fencing would be a slow means of reestablishing ground-cover vegetation. Fertilization and liming were not very effective in producing an increase in the area covered by ground vegetation.
