Rangeland Vegetation Management and Restoration
Sometimes the present plant community on a site may not meet a landowner's needs for managing livestock, wildlife, or ecosystem health. When this happens, managers may take steps to change the vegetation structure or composition to meet their needs or restore the vegetation to its natural state. Included are links to important concepts of vegetation management, and examples of how one can manipulate vegetation to achieve specific land management goals.
