Multi-resource Management Research in the Southwest--The Beaver Creek Program
Abstract:On the Beaver Creek watershed in Arizona, the U.S. Forest Service and other agencies have shown that conversion of pinyon-juniper stands to grass will improve livestock forage but will increase streamflow only if the unwanted vegetation is removed with herbicides. Thinning overdense ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Laws.) stands increases yields of water and forage as well as wood. Recently the research has been expanded to provide decision-making procedures useful in multi-resource management.
