North Fork Of Threemile Creek
Plate 1520X. North Fork of Threemile Creek 1957 – 2007 The Forest Service established two Parker Three-Step Transects near the head of the North Fork of Threemile Creek northwest of Panguitch, Utah in 1958. Plate 1520x is viewed northwest at the start of the second transect. Aspen has declined while pinyon, juniper, Douglas fir, and ponderosa pine have increased. Aspen has not successfully regenerated in many years due to excessive ungulate herbivory (Kay and Bartos 2000). The area was more heavily grazed in 2007 than in 1957.
