clear boxFairchild Juniper Thinning - Bald Eagle Nesting Habitat Improvement

Bald eagles prefer to nest in large, isolated pine trees adjacent to an adequate food source. This project was designed to ensure the longevity of potential bald eagle nesting habitat by removing juniper trees that have encroached into the pine stands. The junipers compete directly with pines for nutrients and moisture, and provide a fuel ladder into the pine crowns during wildfire.
