The pinyon-juniper woodlands are extensive in the Western United States and are a valuable renewable resource for many uses: livestock grazing, fuelwood harvesting, pinyon nut gathering, wildlife habitat, and a source for poles, posts, Christmas trees, and other home decorations. Such uses have made the pinyon-juniper woodlands an important part in the historical past of the. Pinyon-juniper (Pinus monophylla - Juniperus osteosperma) woodlands have expanded and infilled over the last years to cover more than 40 million ha in the Great Basin. Many land managers seek to remove Pinyon-juniper trees using a variety of treatments. This thesis looks at six different Pinyon-juniper removal projects in Central and Eastern Nevada.
other resource problems. However, areas that are still in the early phases of pinyon and juniper invasion often retain a large component of grasses and shrubs. This provides an opportunity to reverse resource degradation relatively inexpensively through the removal of young trees. Financial Assistance NRCS has several voluntary conservation.

In Colorado, pinyon-juniper ecological systems may occur as shrublands or woodlands. These systems are typically found at lower elevations (ranging from 4, - 8, ft) on dry mountains and foothills of the Colorado Plateau region on the Western Slope. Pinyon-juniper also occurs in a limited distribution on the eastern plains near the Purgatoire River. The impacts of pinyon-juniper invasion of grasslands on basin hydrology include increased sedi-ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES AND WATER MANAGEMENT Figure Spread of juniper near Acoma, New Mexico, and ment fluxes during heavy precipitation events. Whether overall runoff increased is not clear. Some evidence suggests that periodic recharge.

Fort Collins, Colo.: Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station, Forest Service, U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Reviews experiments on several catchment areas in Beaver Creek, Arizona, to study the effects on water yield of removing the overstorey of the Pinyon (Pinus edulis)/Juniper (Juniperus spp.) woodland by mechanical treatments (cabling or felling) or aerial application of herbicide (after which the dead trees were left standing).
Effects on water quality, sediment yield, the vegetation and its Cited by: Excellent Article on the Twisted Truths of Pinyon-Juniper Forest Removal in the Great Basin. Decem - This article by Katie Fite of Wildlands Defense, published a few days ago in Counterpunch, well summarizes what we have discovered about pinyon-juniper native trees are simply a scapegoat to hide the real problems.
Pinyon-juniper removal has long-term effects on mammals Article in Forest Ecology and Management October with 83 Reads How we measure 'reads'. Forested catchments throughout the world are known for producing high quality water for human use. In the 20th Century, experimental forest catchment studies played a key role in studying the processes contributing to high water quality.
The hydrologic processes investigated on these paired catchments have provided the science base for examining water quality responses to natural disturbances Cited by: 7. Archaeological data and ethnographic accounts testify of the importance of resources available in the pinyon-juniper woodland to native peoples since the early Holocene.
Food, shelter, raw material for tool construction, tinder, and preferred settlement location are a few of these. Although early evidence is sometimes inconclusive, information from more recent periods argue for increasing. benefits of juniper removal projects in the Box Elder SGMA.
Objectives 1. To determine if sage-grouse vital rates differ by habitats used and relative to the type of conifer removal projects at both temporal and spatial scales. To determine the effects of changes in. the above 3 tree removal methods.
Project Description. Pinyon-juniper habitat has increased throughout the western United States over the past century. While this increase is not necessarily unnatural or detrimental, managers often convert pinyon-juniper stands to sagebrush ecosystems in an effort to increase forage for big game, especiallyFile Size: KB.
Natural History of Pinyon-Juniper Forest – Ecology – Rough extent of Pinyon Juniper forest (Evans ) Pinyon Pine and Juniper trees live together in forests that occur from Idaho in the north to Mexico in the south, and from eastern California in the west to Colorado in the east.
These forests cover some 55 million acres in the United States. Effects of Fire on Pinyon Juniper Soils W. Wallace Covington2 and Leonard F. DeBano3 Pinyon-juniper woodlands occupy between 25 and 32 million ha in the western United States (Arnold et al.ClappKuchler ,) and more than million ha in Arizona and New Mexico (Springfield, ).

We found marked differences in habitat use between historically chained sites and reference woodlands for 5 out of the 8 species Cited by: 6. Pinyon-juniper habitats are expanding into savannah, grassland, and shrub steppe areas in the intermountain west (West et al. Tree densities in pinyon-juniper habitats have increased in the past years at the expense of the formerly more abundant shrub and herbaceous understory (West et.
Pinyon-Juniper Habitat. Habitat Description, Status and Importance.

This commercially almost valueless type has invaded and taken over grassland communities. It now covers ca. 14 million acres. Methods of control that have been tried include uprooting by cable or chain, bulldozing, controlled burning, and clear felling. None is really economic, but uprooting by cable or chain is the least expensive.
KEYWORDS: grazing \ Range management \ Silviculture Cited by: Although pinyon-juniper is a native component contributing to landscape heterogeneity in the Great Basin and some encroachment may stem from natural recovery of pinyon-juniper woodlands previously cleared by European settlers (Romme et al., ), the overall current rate of encroachment is profoundly influencing contemporary sagebrush Cited by:.

The ecological results after chainsaw cutting, or prescribed fire can appear similar in the short-term, but trajectories sometimes diverge over time.

In general, the use of prescribed fire has been more limited in pinyon-juniper woodlands because the fuel structure is not as conducive to low intensity fire spread, although this depends on the type of pinyon-juniper woodland (Romme et al.
