North Fork Of Chalk Creek




Plate 103. NORTH FORK OF CHALK CREEK: 1961 - 1999 The area had been contour trenched and seeded to prevent soil erosion shortly before the 1961 photo was taken. Although aspen (Populus tremuloides) is taller in 1999 than in the 1961 photo, it has not regenerated. Conifers increased in height and number by 1999, especially in the trenched area.
