Final Round ISRP Comment:
This could be a model project for "protect and restore" efforts having to do with road de-commissioning. Overall, concerns have been addressed including a positive response to a suggestion for a Ph.D. student to evaluate the many data sets accumulated during the project. The spraying of an herbicide prior to disturbance may be useful, depending on the season; however, the most important element will be suitable re-vegetation after disturbance, as noted in some of the public comment. Fertilization may benefit weeds more than native species and is an expense that could probably be eliminated. Mulching with weed free straw may be a more effective use of funds.
