Three Forks




Plate 338. THREE FORKS PAHVANT MOUNTAINS 1963-2001 Viewed southwest over the head of Three Forks to White Pine Peak (10,215 ft) in the Pahvant Mountains. Parts of the area were contour-trenched, gully-plugged, and reseeded by the Forest Service to control erosion. Conifers have increased in height and numbers. Most aspen stands, though, have failed to regenerate in many years due to excessive browsing of new aspen suckers. The shrub in the lower right corner is serviceberry. Radio towers now top White Pine Peak. This plate is similar to Plate 295.
