Literature Review and Recorded Presentations 

“I think this is the greatest threat to the Great Plains in many different ways. Certainly one of the dominant threats to the rangelands.”  

Sam Fuhlendorf, Oklahoma State University, in his presentation'Ecology and Management of Juniper in the Great Plains' at the 2014 Society for Range Management meeting.

The literature review is collaborative product from our Great Plains Fire Science Exchange and Tallgrass Prairie & Oak Savanna Fire Science Consortium. It provides existing knowledge about the expansion and ecological repercussions of redcedar encroachment, and summarizes best practices for control of redcedar in the tallgrass prairie region. The map to the left shows the approximate data collection locations for research highlighted in the document. 

A playlist of four recorded presentations from the 2014 Society for Range Management meeting workshop: 'Understanding the Problem with Junipers in the Great Plains' resides on the Great Plains Fire Science Exchange YouTube channel:

Ecology and Management of Juniper in the Great Plains - Sam Fuhlendorf

What We Know about the Consequences of Expansion of Juniperus (virginiana) into Grasslands - John M. Briggs

Ecological Intervention in Juniperus Encroached Rangelands - Dirac Tidwell

Invaded, Infested, or Invested? - Larry D. Sanders and Tracy Boyer

“It’s very insidious. It’s creeping. It’s gradual. That’s what makes it somewhat of a problem. You just look up one day and basically, you’re in a different land.”  
Sam Fuhlendorf
