Western Juniper Woodland Chainsaw Cut Subplot

Blue Mountain Site Yearly Photo Sequence

The chainsaw cut treatment was implemented at all SageSTEP woodland sites. All trees over 1/2-meter tall were cut with a chainsaw and left where they fell. The images below show one of the chainsaw subplots at the Blue Mountain site from 2007 to 2010. The chainsaw cut took place at Blue Mountain in the fall of 2007 after baseline data were collected.
