Right Fork Of Haycock Creek

1965

2005

Description:

Plate 1050X. Right Fork of Haycock Creek 1965 – 2005 Viewed south-southeast down the Right Fork of Haycock Creek north of Panguitch Lake. The meadow has not been treated and is mostly Stipa spp., needle and thread, squirreltail, Poa spp., and Festuca spp. Silver sage is the most common shrub and appears to have increased. Conifers have increased, though, many of the older spruce have recently been killed by insects and disease. Aspen has declined but some stands did regenerate 30 years ago when mule deer population were low, but not before or since due to repeated ungulate herbivory (Kay and Bartos 2000). Today, those aspen saplings have all been highlined by elk and deer. The area is grazed by cattle.
