Roundup Flat Exclosure

1958

2003

Description:

Plate 356X. Roundup Flat Exclosure 1958 - 2003 Viewed east to the Roundup Flat exclosure on the eastside of Boulder Mountain. The exclosure was built in 1957 and has not been grazed by livestock for 46 years. Deer and elk, however, can enter the exclosure. New allotment fences have been added in the retake. Aspen regenerated about 30 years ago when mule deer numbers declined, but not before or since due to excessive browsing by wildlife and livestock (Kay and Bartos 2000). The area to the left of the allotment fence was grazed by cattle in 2003, but not the foreground or the area to the right. Snowberry and green rabbitbrush have increased, especially inside the exclosure. The grasses are primarily Stipa spp.
