Juniper removal may not increase water yields in the Klamath Basin
The following peer-reviewed research articles have been published in the University of California’s California Agriculture journal. Full-text PDFs are linked below and also available on the California Agriculture Web site.
Juniper removal may not increase water yields in the Klamath Basin: Western juniper has expanded dramatically within the semiarid Klamath River Basin over the past 130 years. UC researchers evaluated the feasibility of augmenting water yields by removing this water-loving tree. The results suggest that the conversion of western juniper woodlands to shrublands or grasslands would not substantially increase water yields in the Basin. Contact: Kenneth W.
