    Description

    We sampled unchained and chained areas in 2004 and 2005 on the Henry Mountains that had been aerially seeded after the Bulldog Fire of 2003. Establishment of seeded grasses was high on unchained and chained areas although chaining increased seeded grass establishment on some sites. Western yarrow established well on unchained areas. Initially, high seedling emergence in 2004, followed by high precipitation in late winter 2005, produced 15 to 25 percent total seeded plant cover on both unchained and chained areas by summer of 2005. Aerial seeding at lower elevations and with less precipitation usually requires some form of seed coverage to be successful.
