Description

A first step in the management of a forest range is to inventory the forage--to determine the kind and amount of plants edible to livestock on various parts of the range. This information is needed to plan the proper number and distribution of animals and the season of grazing. The forage inventory method described here has been used on several experimental forests of the Southern Forest Experiment Station since 1944, and on national forests in the Gulf States and Arkansas since 1951.
