Title: Dynamics of a Pinyon-Juniper Stand in Northern Arizona: A Half-Century History

Author: Ffolliott, P.F. , Gottfried, G.J.

Subject: Pinyon-Juniper, Spatial Dynamics

Abstract: This paper adds to the limited knowledge of stand dynamics in pinyon-juniper woodlands by reporting on the changes in species composition, numbers of trees, arrangements of trees, and total height and volume in a stand from late 1938 to early 1991. This information should be helpful in managing pinyon-juniper woodlands to sustain their productivity and maintain their multiple-use values. The annual increase of 1.2 trees per acre does not reflect the massive invasion of trees suspected by many people.
