Abstract: Broadcast seeding is one of the most widely used emergency treatments after a wildfire in forested ecosystems of the western United States. It is intended to reduce soil erosion, increase vegetative ground cover, and mini-mize establishment and spread of non-native plant species. However, seeding treatments can have negative ef-fects, including competing with recovering native plant communities and inadvertently introducing invasive species.
