Final Report for FNE99-279
Fertility management and intensive grazing with goats were used in an attempt to control the invasion of Easter Red Cedar and Multi-flora Rose. Turkey litter and limestone were applied to 30 acres and goats were rotationally grazed using portable electric fence. The project was discontinued without conclusive results due to management problems such as cattle disrupting the fence and local dog predation. Goats were gone by June 2001 and fence was removed in August 2001.
