Field Workshop: 30 years of western juniper management in the Owyhee Mountains

  • Owyhee County, ID (map)

This was a two-day field workshop hosted by the Idaho Section of the Society for Range Management and the Great Basin Fire Science Delivery Project.  The workshop was led by Rick Miller, Fire Ecologist with Oregon State University and Steve Bunting, Forest, Rangeland, and Fire Sciences Dept., University of Idaho.  We viewed and discussed the efficacy and longevity of various treatments (hand cutting, chaining, cut-and-leave, and prescribed fire) to reduce juniper encroachment into sagebrush steppe habitats.
