The Idaho section of the Society for Range Management and the Great Basin Fire Science Delivery Project are hosting a two-day field tour of juniper treatments and wildfire effects, lead by Rick Miller, Fire Ecologist with Oregon State University and Steve Bunting, Forest, Rangeland, and Fire Sciences Dept., University of Idaho. The tour will include mastication and cut-and-burn projects as well as prescribed fire projects of different ages, many greater than 20 years in age. We will view and discuss the efficacy and longevity of various treatments (hand cutting, chaining, cut-and-leave, and prescribed fire) to reduce juniper encroachment into sagebrush steppe habitats. Objectives for the projects visited include reducing juniper encroachment into sagebrush steppe, improving understory vegetation, and reducing hazardous fuels. Wildfire effects on juniper woodlands will also be discussed at several tour stops.
