The sites described below are located in Ponderosa pine Forest Type on the Manitou Experimental Forest. The sites are bounded by meadows along Trout Creek on the west, Hotel Gulch, on the south, Missouri Gulch on the north, and the Ridgewood subdivision on the east. The area consists of gentle west-sloping terrain intersected by a series of small east-west ridges. No live streams exist in the area. Elevations range from 7,700 to 8,000 ft.

Fire regimes of juniper communities in the Columbia and northern Great basins

Publications Posted on: September 26, 2019
This synthesis summarizes information available in the scientific literature on historical patterns and contemporary changes in fuels and fire regimes in juniper communities of the Columbia and northern Great basins. Limited evidence suggests that many presettlement juniper woodlands and savannas had open stand structures, and they typically occurred in claypan soils or shallow soils on rocky sites.

Genetic variation in Great Plains Juniperus

Publications Posted on: May 12, 2016
Fifth-year analyses of Great Plains Juniperus seed sources indicate eastern redcedar should be collected in east-central Nebraska for use throughout the Great Plains; Rocky Mountain juniper seed should be collected from northwest Nebraska, or central Montana, for planting southward through the Great Plains into west-central Kansas west of the 100th meridian.

Dendrochronology of Utah Juniper (Juniperus osteosperma (Torr.) Little)

Publications Posted on: March 23, 2016
Utah juniper was a foundational species for the discipline of dendrochronology, having been used in the early 20th Century investigations of Mesa Verde, but has been largely ignored by dendrochronologists since. Here we present dendrochronological investigations of Utah juniper core and cross-sectional samples from four sites in northern Utah.

Data product containing 5-year tree heights, survival, and genetic variation for "Genetic Variation in Great Plains Juniperus"

Datasets Posted on: March 27, 2015
Cones from 275 Juniperus trees were collected throughout the Great Plains from 1973 to 1976 and then sown and grown in a nursery in Nebraska in August of 1977. In 1980 the 2-year old seedlings were distributed to plantations across the Great Plains.

Juniper seed sources in the Great Plains

Publications Posted on: December 27, 2007
At age 10, 100% of eastern redcedar ( L.) and Rocky Mountain juniper ( Sarg.) trees from several seed sources throughout the Great Plains had survived. Seed sources from southeastern Texas had the poorest survival. Eastern redcedar trees from Kansas seed sources grew tallest, and trees from Montana and southeastern Texas seed sources were the shortest.
