Use of prescribed burning in western woodland and range ecosystems: a symposium, Ma (Logan: Utah Agricultural Experiment Station, ?), by Utah. Forestry and Fire Control Section and Utah State University. College of Natural Resources (page images at HathiTrust; US access only).   Old junipers have a strange tendency to go hollow in their midsections, so determining the age of the trees by counting their rings can be difficult, if not impossible. Other techniques, however, have revealed that piñons can survive for close to 1, years and western junipers . Ecosystem Renewal can perform a complete hydrologic analysis of a site and design improvements to restore natural systems. What We Do. Initial field observations to document existing site conditions and research to establish historic hydrologic patterns.

In spite of this, there are strong pres- sures to control western juniper throughout its range. Interestingly, the reasons given for the necessity to control juniper are exactly the same as those given years earlier. Western juniper (Juniperus occidentalis spp.

Particularly noticeable are the changes in the water and nutrient cycles. As western jumper increases in number and size, a larger proportion of the water falling on a site is affected by. Ecosystems & Habitats Tree Dominated Wildlife Habitats Juniper (JUN) September 2008 book Species, White Fir, Jeffrey Pine Vegetation Structure-- Juniper habitats are characterized as woodlands of open to dense aggregations of junipers (California, Utah, or western) in the form of arborescent shrubs or small trees (Cheatham and HallerKüchlerVasek and ThorneMartinPaysen et al.

Maximum growth rates for redberry juniper generally occur between June and September (McPherson and Wright ). Based on tree ring analysis, redberry junipers occupying upland sites grow about in/yr in height during years 1- 10, in/yr during years 11 – 20 and in/yr during years 21 – Juniper can be of value for wildlife.

Abstract. Forests cover about 47% of the Northwest (NW–Washington, Oregon, and Idaho) (Smith et al.fig.table ). The impacts of current and future climate change on NW forest ecosystems are a product of the sensitivities of ecosystem processes to climate and the degree to which humans depend on and interact with those systems.

It is hardy to zone (UK) 6. It is in leaf all year, and the seeds ripen in October. The species is dioecious (individual flowers are either male or female, but only one sex is to be found on any one plant so both male and female plants must be grown if seed is required).

Due largely to modern day fire suppression, junipers, a “native invasive,” have expanded from one million acres at the turn of the 20th century to a staggering 10 million acres today. Junipers are a thirsty tree, drinking up to 35 gallons of water per day in a high desert ecosystem that is.

In addition, a multi-state study was conducted in and (and will continue) to determine the distribution and. Western juniper woodlands have been the focus of extensive research and management due to range expansion and infilling that began over a century ago.

Understanding juniper seed dispersal is vital to identifying processes behind this expansion. Dispersal of Juniperus seeds has generally been attributed to consumption of female juniper cones (“berries”) by frugivorous birds and mammals Cited by: 5.

They usually grow on saline soils, tolerating up to 15, ppm soluble salt and can also tolerate alkaline conditions. Tamarisks are characterized by slender branches and grey-green : Tracheophytes.
