DescriptionManagement of restored and rehabilitated ranges can be divided into (1) post-treatment, which we are most concerned with herein, and (2) management of the subsequent mature community. Immediate post-treatment management can positively or negatively affect the ultimate success and longevity of a project, and the actual returns and benefits received. It is essential to follow good post-treatment management practices to obtain the maximum return on investments made. The post-treatment management period may last as long as 10 years following treatment.
