Three closely related research studies were installed on Indian Boundary Campground. Tellico Ranger District, Cherokee National Forest, in 1964. Two are designed to study biological and ecological relationships, and include the following objectives: (1) To determine relations between the timing and intensity of overstory density reduction on the response of understory vegetation, and (2) to determine which native and introduced species of understory vegetation are best suited for planting on developed recreation sites. The third study is designed to determine camper reaction to the cutting treatments installed.
