Description:

Plate 220. COONAH BENCH 1948-1954-2000 Viewed southwest over Coonah Bench with Monroe Mountain in the distance. This area along USFS Road 053 was root-plowed, burned, and reseeded in 1951 to eliminate sagebrush and to stimulate the production of grasses and forbs. Sagebrush has since reinvaded the site and significantly reduced the carrying capacity of the range.
