cherry stemmed
 v.— «Let me refer you to the onsite map and the references to the cherry stemmed roads. We have learned that we need to have the ability, if necessary, to put structures up along the border, but we need proper access and communication. Border patrol and BLM have completed a road that runs right along the border, and, if you notice, the wilderness area does not include the area actually on the border. That gives the Border Patrol the ability to build structures if need be, and to maintain their access roads. On either side of the cherry stemmed roads they have a 100 feet.» —by Subcommittee On National Parks And Public Lands Of The Committee On Resources House Of Representatives Hearing on H.R. 15, H.R. 150, and H.R. 154 (Washington, D.C.) Feb. 4, 1999.
