    Description

    Improvement of vegetative and edaphic conditions on some wildland sites can be achieved through proper management as well as by manipulative plantings (Vallentine 1980). Sites that have been subjected to serious abuse or that lack needed cover, habitat, or forage resources can be improved by various methods (Vallentine 1980). Prior to the development of any site improvement program, land managers must first discern the resource needs and suitability of an area for treatment (Plummer and others 1968). Then appropriate methods and techniques can be developed.
