Project thins dense juniper stands, clears way for watershed

September 17, 2019by ncdea

OREGON, Klamath SWCD – Ryan Gallagher can hardly wait until next spring.

That’s when he expects to see a lush crop of grass carpeting some 600 acres of pasture where a dense stand of juniper trees formerly stood on the ranch he manages 30 miles east of Klamath Falls.

“This country can grow some really good grass,” Gallagher said Wednesday, Sept. 11, during a tour of the juniper clearing project recently completed by the Klamath Soil and Water Conservation District.

Members of the conservation district board of directors were joined by members of the public to study the project site. Several of those present exchanged stories of how juniper trees have covered broad landscapes that were once valuable rangeland over the past century.
