Transcript of Brushy Loam - Pinyon/Juniper

Brushy Loam (P.Z: 20"-25")
Pinyon Pine & Juniper Community
Beginning Ecological Site
Treatment 1
Ecological State 1
Vegetative density is dominated by mature pinyon pine and juniper trees
A moderate understory is dominated by mountain big sage, serviceberry, and moderately diverse grasses and forbs
Bare ground is moderate
As big game habitat, this state provides good cover, but poor forage
Moderate Density Pinyon-Juniper with Moderate Understory & Bare Ground
Low Stature Mountain Shrubs/Moderate Herbaceous Understory
Ecological State 2
Upper Canopy (>5ft) has been removed
Tree density and canopy substantially reduced
Mountain shrubs display strong re-sprouting
All shrubs exist within the browse zone
Low Stature Mountain Shrubs/Moderate Herbaceous Understory
Ecological State 3
Upper Canopy (>5ft) remains absent
Tree density and canopy cover remain greatly reduced
Seeded grasses and forbs show sprouting in the understory (visible shifts in species composition)
Treatment 1: Hydroaxe
Cost per Acre:
Tree canopy removed. Low stature mountain shrubs & moderate herbaceous understory
Reversion Time to State 1:

12-20 years (depending on herbivory)
Treatment 2: Broadcast Seeding
Cost Per Acre:
Shift in species composition within the herbaceous understory
Reversion time to Ecological State 1:
12-20, depending on herbivory
Ecological Site #2
Ecological Site #3
Treatment 2
