East Fork Of The Sevier River
Plate 222X. East Fork of the Sevier River 1963 - 2003 Viewed northwest on the East Fork of the Sevier River between Dairy Hollow and the Podunk Guard Station. The area in the foreground has been contour-trenched and reseeded with smooth brome and intermediate wheatgrass to control soil erosion. Aspen has declined, while ponderosa pine, spruce, juniper, and willows have increased. Rubber rabbitbrush, bitterbrush, shrubby cinquefoil, and currant have all increased on the far hillside. The East Fork Road (USFS 087) is visible in both photos. Sagebrush has increased where the area has been contour trenched. Retakes from this camera station were also made by the Forest Service in 1983 and 2000.
