    The Southern Utah Wilderness Alliance and the Wild Utah Project are critical of the BLM’s plan to remove the trees by chaining or using a mastication machine that uproots and mulches trees. Utah Pinyon-Juniper Forests. Important for wood fiber, though spruce is worth considerably more than fir; wildlife habitat, recreation, and watershed values also important.

    Abstract: Nongame wildlife responses to chaining of pinyon-juniper (Pinus edulis-Juniperus osteosper-ma) woodland were studied in in the Piceance Basin, Colorado. Vegetation and small-mammal populations were sampled on a mature pinyon-juniper woodland (control) and areas chained 1, 8, and 15 years previously. In semiarid pinyon-juniper environments, the principal mech- anisms of redistribution of water, sediments, nutrients, and cont- aminants are runoff and erosion. To study the phenomena underlying these mechanisms, we established six m’ plots, in intercanopy zones, for .

Since the yearthe Utah Watershed Restoration Initiative state of Utah has done projects on at leastacres of Sage-grouse habitat (Figure 6). A large percentage of these projects involve conifer removal.

Utilizing the information gleaned from these efforts (best available science), experts in the state of Utah are. This year SUWA ran a TV commercial of bulldozer chaining in the Hamlin Valley on the Utah-Nevada border, and warned of impending BLM pinyon-juniper destruction in.

Abstract. Abstract-Pinyon-juniper watersheds are important seasonal transition areas for grazing and wildlife habitat. Tree control to improve habitat and hydrologic responses have been questioned because low precipitation, high evapotranspiration, and coarse surface soils of many sites suggest that runoff, erosion, and subsurface water yield should be minimal anyway.

1. Introduction. Removing or reducing tree cover to benefit livestock or game species has been a common forest management practice for decades (Aro,Yahner,Redmond et al.,Bergman et al., ).The scale and intensity of tree removal practices is expected to increase as technology advances and land managers are tasked with meeting multiple objectives, including fire.

Wildfire has played an important role in structuring pinyon-juniper woodlands, with different fire regimes historically present in the three pinyon-juniper woodland types described in Chapter 2.

Inbaseline water quality data was collected from study locations which had been chained to remove pinyon-juniper vegetation six years earlier. Total pinyon-juniper reduction was an estimated 2 km 2, with 65% attributable to management (1 km 2) and another 35% to wildfire ( km 2; see Fig.

1c). Only % of areas supporting ≥ 1% cover (−% by ownership; Fig. 2) were reduced by management and wildfire imately 87% of reductions occurred in the three Great Basin states of Utah ( km. Describe the value of any features being protected by reducing the risk of fire.

Roundy Jason L. Vernon Abstract-Pinyon-juniper watersheds are important seasonal transition areas for grazing and wildlife habitat.

Tree control to improve habitat and hydrologic responses have been questioned. Ronald Lanner in his book “The Pinyon Pine: A Natural and Cultural History” estimates that between and three million acres of pinyon-juniper forests were converted to grazing lands while between and the Forest Service and BLM cut over a third of a million of acres in Utah .During and a water quality study was conducted in San Juan County, southeastern Utah.

Inbaseline water quality data was collected from study locations which had been chained to remove pinyon-juniper vegetation six years earlier. The area had been chained under two different techniques: (1) doubled chained, with debris-left-in-place and (2) chained, with debris windrowed.A ‐ha pinyon‐juniper watershed in north‐central Arizona was sprayed with a herbicide mixture to kill all overstory vegetation.

After 8 years of postherbicide evaluation, the dead trees were removed. The herbicide treatment induced an increase in annual streamflow of about %.
