Skaggs Springs -Stewarts Pt. Road, Northern Sonoma County. This Douglas fir site cleared by girdling and fir 10 years ago. Since then heavily grazed by sheep. Note exposed roots on Douglas fir snag on left indicated loss of several feet of soil by sheet erosion. Note also serious gully erosion which is exposing bed rock. Hardwood trees surviving are Black oak and Tanbark oak.
