Cattle and Wooded Draws: A Second Look
Wooded draws or “coulees” in the western Dakotas are associated with the steeper portions of large river valleys such as the Missouri, Cheyenne, and White and their main tributaries. These woodlands are a mixture of green ash, hackberry, American elm, cottonwood, and Rocky Mountain juniper. All but juniper also dominate nearby riparian habitats. Shrub species usually outnumber tree species and are dominated by chokecherry, Saskatoon serviceberry, wild plum, buffalo currant, fragrant sumac, and western snowberry.
