    Description

    Fuel reduction treatments around pinyon pine trees began as a simple project but ended in something more complex, enjoyable, and rewarding. The project eventually led to pinyon species (Pinus monophylla and P. quadrifolia) reforestation efforts, something that has been tried in the past with disappointing results. The Perry Pinyon Pines Protection Project and current efforts at propagation are described for areas on the San Jacinto Ranger District, San Bernardino National Forest, and on the Ramona and Santa Rosa Indian reservations. A greater measure of success in propagation of these pinyon species has been obtained through a better understanding of their environmental needs.
