Precipitation for the past 5 y has been only half of normal. Decline of sagebrush communities has been of primary concern for wildlife specialists. Recently, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources has focused efforts on restoration of Wyoming big sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata Nutt. ssp. wyomingensis Beetle & Young [Asteraceae]), but that is only one of several subspecies of A. tridentata that occurs throughout the state. The Lone Peak Conservation Nursery staff has worked for many years to develop reliable and predictable propagation protocols for big sagebrush. Propagation trials began in 1990 for mountain big sagebrush (A. tridentata Nutt. ssp. vaseyana (Rydb.) Beetle) and in 1995 for Wyoming big sagebrush. This work owes much to the early efforts of former managers John Justin (currently manages State of Montana Conservation Seedling Nursery) and Scott Zeidler (Community Forester, Utah Division of Forestry, Fire, and State Lands).
