Comments:Tobacco brush occurs as scattered shrubs in forest understories or as the sole or dominant shrub in what is often called montane chaparral. Self-perpetuating stands are unusual; instead, most stands are established after fire or logging and are transitional to various kinds of forest. Keeler-Wolf (1990e) qualitatively describes tobacco brush stands at Upper Goose Creek candidate RNA in Del Norte Co. l-KlaR; at Antelope Creek Lakes candidate RNA su-CasR, Shasta Mudflow RNA in Siskiyou Co. m-CasR; at Mud Lake RNA in Plumas Co.; Babbitt Peak RNA in Sierra Co. su-SN.
Plot based descriptions:Imper (1988a) in Keeler-Wolf (1990e) defines a Tobacco brush-greenleaf manzanita association at Haypress Meadows can RNA in Siskiyou Co. m-KlaR; Conard & Radoevich (1982) report cover for Sierra Co. m-SN stands.
