Answering questions about the appropriateness of woody vegetation treatments
Federal and state agencies across Utah and the Great Basin have been actively treating pinyon and juniper woodlands to improve wildlife habitat, reduce fuel loads, and achieve watershed objectives. Increasingly these activities have been questioned by stakeholder groups and citizens who are concerned about the unintended consequences of such treatments. This webinar addresses some of the recent criticisms of pinyon-juniper treatment, sharing results of research on woody vegetation removal as well as identifying questions that still need to be answered through research and monitoring.
Speakers: Eric Thacker, Mark Brunson
