Mountain Big Sagebrush Community
Tall stature mountain big sagebrush/limited herbaceous understory
Ecological State 1
Vegetative community composed of dense, tall mountain big sagebrush
Some grasses and forbs present; minimal bare ground
As big game habitat, site provides good cover and moderate forage
Sprouting Mountain Big Sage/limited herbaceous understory
Ecological State 2
Vegetative density is greatly reduced
Resprouting and recruitment of new mountain big sagebrush
Vigorous growth among herbaceous species
As big game habitat, this state provides moderate forage with cover nearby
Low Stature Mountain Big Sagebrush/Sprouting of Seeded Species
Ecological State 3
Vegetative density is composed of low stature mountain big sagebrush, native herbaceous species, and newly sprouting seeded species.
As big game habitat this state provides good forage with cover nearby
Beginning Ecological State
Ecological State #2
Ecological State #3
Treatment 1: Roller Chopper
Cost per Acre:
Removal of sagebrush & strong growth in herbaceous understory
Reversion Time to State 1:
12-20 years (depending on herbivory)
Treatment 2: Broadcast Seeding
Cost per Acre:
Shift in species composition within the herbaceous understory
Reversion Time to State 1:
12-20 years (depending on herbivory)
Treatment 1
Treatment 2
