Equitable Sawmill

1902

2005

Description:

Plate 1024X. Equitable Sawmill 1902 – 2005 Viewed west-southwest to the Equitable Sawmill on Clear Creek west of Panguitch Lake. The original camera station is now blocked by conifers, so the retake was made from the nearest open area. Nothing remains of the sawmill or cabins. Ponderosa pine, spruce, white fir and Douglas fir have all increased, while aspen has declined. Some aspen stands, though, regenerated 30 years ago when deer number were low, but not before or since due to repeated ungulate herbivory (Kay and Bartos 2000). Mountain big sage and bitterbrush appear to have increased in the foreground.
