• Response of Big Sagebrush and Three-tip Sagebrush to Season of Clipping

      Wright, H. A. (Society for Range Management, 1970-01-01)
      An 80% clipping treatment reduced yields of big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) most when applied during July, moderately when applied during spring, and least when applied during late summer through winter months. Three-tip sagebrush (Artemisia tripartita) responded similarly during July, but it was most tolerant to clipping during April and May. During the fall and winter months, three-tip sagebrush appears less tolerant to clipping than big sagebrush.
