cherry-stem
 v.— «At meetings with various groups during the past few years, the National Park Service had said that some areas within the recommended wilderness boundary could be “cherry- stemmed” out from the wilderness boundary as “minor modifications.”… “Cherry-stemming” is a method of excluding “non-conforming” uses such as roads from areas proposed as wilderness.» —by National Park Service, U.S. Department of the Interior Frequently Asked Questions General Management Plan /Wilderness Study/Environmental Impact Statement  Feb. 1, 2006.
