cherry-stem
 v.— «If a dead-end road extends into another roadless area, the wilderness area boundary is sometimes drawn so as to exclude the road but include the land on both sides of the road. This is called a “cherry-stem,” since the road bears some resemblance to a cherry-stem jutting into the wilderness area.» —“Frequently Asked Questions: Original BLM Wilderness Inventory” Utah Wilderness Coalition (Moab, Utah) May 31, 2007.
