• Large Alligator Junipers Benefit Early-Spring Forage

      Clary, W. P.; Morrison, D. C. (Society for Range Management, 1973-01-01)
      The production of early-spring grasses in central Arizona was four to five times higher under crowns of large alligator juniper than for similar sized areas away from the trees. Virtually all utilization of green forage by grazing animals at this time of the year occurred under the juniper crowns. These large alligator junipers should be protected during pinyon-juniper control operations.
