Description: Selected shrub species are being studied in southern California for their possible fuel volume or slow burning characteristics. In propagation tests, five species-fourwing, Gardner's, Nuttall's, and allscale saltbushes; and creeping sage - rooted successfully from green tip and ripewood stem cuttings taken in spring and fall and placed under intermittent mist. Practically no rooting resulted from cuttings of two other species studied: hairy yerbasanta and woolly nama. Green tip cuttings treated with hormone rooted faster and more often than similar cuttings without hormone, or ripewood cuttings with or without treatment.
Keywords: Atriplex spp., Salvh sonomensis, propagation tests, stem cuttings, rooting ability, fire hazard reduction, fuel modification
