    Description

    Results of the first three years of revegetation research on closed wilderness campsites are described. Experimental treatments involved soil scarification, an organic soil amendment (a mix of locally collected organic materials and peat moss and an inoculation of native undisturbed soil), an organic matter and composted sewage sludge treatment and surface application of commercial mulch (Bionet). Half of the experimental plots received native seed and transplants; the other half did not. Seeding and transplanting were highly successful. The organic and compost soil amendment greatly increased seedling growth and increased transplant growth somewhat. Scarification increased seedling establishment of volunteer seedlings.
