Juniper Management Effectiveness Monitoring


In the late 1990s OWEB began providing grants to fund watershed restoration projects, including those controlling western juniper. In recent years there has been a growing interest in controlling juniper in order to improve forage production for grazing livestock, restore hydrologic function to rangelands, and protect sagebrush habitat. This increased awareness of the negative impacts of juniper expansion has resulted in a steady rise in the number of grant applications for juniper removal and management projects. Because OWEB's limited available funds and the seemingly unlimited acres needing juniper treatment in central and eastern Oregon, OWEB contracted with CSR Natural Resources Consulting, Inc. (NRCI) to complete several juniper removal studies and to provide educational opportunities to OWEB staff, Regional Review Team (RRT) members, Soil and Water Conservation Districts (SWCDs), and Watershed Councils (WCs).
