Revegetation Guidelines for the Great Basin: Considering Invasive Weeds

by R. Sheley, J. Mangold, K. Goodwin, and J. Marks

Large portions of western Montana’s landscape become degraded and disturbed every day due to natural and human-induced causes. Some disturbed areas may recover naturally in time but other areas may never recover naturally because invasive weeds establish quickly and prevent native plants from establishing. Invasive weeds can potentially spread into adjacent, healthy landscapes where they can threaten local biodiversity, alter nutrient and water cycling, diminish wildlife and livestock forage, and increase soil erosion and stream sedimentation. This publication provides an indepth, step-by-step guide to the processes and procedures of establishing desired plant species in the portion of Montana west of the Continental Divide. Color, 60 pages.
