The problem is pinon-juniper woodlands are invading highly-productive uplands and riparian areas at the expense of traditional forage and fiber production methods. This project explores the response of woodland areas to different types of management to enable grass production and woodland products to be maximized over time.

    Introduction. Ashe juniper is commonly controlled by grubbing or dozing on the Edwards Plateau at a cost of $ per acre or more depending upon its only is this cost difficult to recover from added forage production, but it also leaves pastures in an extremely rough condition, often turns up large rock fragments, scatters pricklypear, and damages the grass turf. pinyon-juniper rangelands. On 10, acres converted from pinyon­ juniper to grass, the stocking rate was increased from 93 head of steers to about head for a 5 month grazing season. This represents a fold increase in livestock production. In another .

    Jensen (control) In conclusion, this study has provided a valuable insight into how western juniper utilizes available moisture and how removal of stands of juniper may provide improved water availability for forage production, livestock and wildlife water and increased ground water for down slope uses.   But the fire behaved differently when it reached the Fort Apache Indian Reservation. It flickered in grass and duff between stout ponderosas, laid .

The effects of juniper control (clearing with axes) were evaluated at 7 sites which were cleared over a period of 13 years.

The time of clearing and subsequent grazing use varied amongst the sites. Herbage yields from cleared areas which were either protected or winter-grazed, showed that, after clearing for 2 years, the average yield was 82 air-dry lb.

Understanding why juniper is unpalatable to herbivores and how herbivores avoid the toxic effects of essential oils will lead to management practices that increase juniper consumption on rangelands. Greater consumption of juniper may be important to meet animal nutritional demands (especially during fall, winter, and during droughts) or enhance.

The relationship was found to be curvilinear. Forage production decreased at an increasing rate until the juniper canopy reached about 34%, then decreased at a decreasing rate as juniper canopy cover continued to increase (Fig. Adapted from Gerbolini, ). Increases in juniper density and size has the effect of reducing understory plant cover and productivity, with desirable forage grasses often being most severely reduced (Eddleman ).

Juniper is an evergreen with extensive lateral and deep roots, and it has physiological adaptations which enable it to extract water from very dry soil.
