clear boxSouth Warner Mountain Aspens - Conifer Encroachment

The quaking aspen stands in the Warner Mountains have been reduced in both amount and function for the past several decades. This decrease is mainly the result of encroachment of conifers such as white fir into susceptible stands, as well as stands impacted by browse use by domestic and wild ungulates. Note the sparse density and non-existant regeneration in this non-functioning stand. Ideally, the stand should be too dense to look through, with a distribution of size classes.
