Shrub Control and Reseeding Effects on the Oak Chaparral of Arizona
Burning-reseeding and burning-reseeding-herbicide treatments near Dewey, Arizona significantly reduced oak chaparral shrub cover for over 7 years and resulted in significantly greater grass production for 5 to 7 years. Grass production was up to 770 lb/acre greater on treated areas than on untreated, depending on the type of treatment, number of years following treatment, and various environmental factors.
