    A new book on the Agroforestry practice of Silvopasture, by Steve Gabriel, has the explicit goal of telling the story of what we know - and don’t know – about the concept of integrating livestock production with trees and forestry. The book Continue. forests in the Western US have been found to store more soil organic carbon (SOC) in the mineral soil than nearby conifers. Fire exclusion and grazing often promote the succession of aspen to conifer dominated forests due to their effect on aspen regeneration.

Colorado Front Range forest ecosystems are typically composed of overstocked, dense tree stands prone to insect, disease, and fire damage. The project examines different tree harvesting systems to determine the most cost effective way to thin trees in order to reduce forest fire danger and to enhance development of healthy forests.

Forage utilization by cattle was estimated on each macroplot and an average utilization estimate was made for each stand in the mixed conifer forest of the Hall Ranch. Tree overstory cover was found to be negatively associated with herbage by: 2. Forage production and utilization in a mixed conifer forest in the Wallowa Mountain foothills.

Traveling across the state, you soon discover that Oregon is home to a wide range of trees. There are 30 native coniferous species and 37 native species of broadleaf trees. Oregon varies greatly in terms of elevation, temperature, wind, rainfall and soil composition.

Combinations of all these factors help determine the dominant tree species of an area. Approximat square kilometers are classified as Rocky Mountain Dry-Mesic Montane Mixed Conifer Forest in the Montana Land Cover layers. Grid on map is based on USGS minute quadrangle map boundaries.

Long-term soil charcoal C (CC) pools result from the combined effects of wildland fires, aboveground biomass characteristics and soil transfer mechanisms.

We measured CC pools in surface soils ( cm) at mid-slope positions. The Sierra Nevada is a large mountain range in eastern California and western Nevada, stretching miles ( km), from Fredonyer Pass in the north to Tehachapi Pass in the south.

The mixed conifer forest covers 10% of the vegetated area in the Sierra Nevada of California (The Sierra Nevada Ecosystem Project, ). In a southeastern US conifer forest charcoal production rates ranged from –% of available biomass and in a northwestern US conifer forest production rates ranged from 1–8% of woody fuels [36, 38].

We reconstructed fire history in ponderosa pine and mixed­conifer forests across the Jemez Mountains in northern New Mexico. We collected fire-scarred samples from ten ponderosa pine areas, and three mesic mixed-conifer areas.

Ponderosa pine forests are a major forest type in western North America (Oliver and Ryker ) and their ecological history has served as a textbook example for the reintroduction of fire and the use of prescribed fire to restore forest structure and function (Moore et al.
