Kelly Creek Conifer Thinning - Phase I
Along the slopes of the Monitor Range in central Nevada, pinyon-juniper woodlands have expanded into rangelands along the valley floor. This encroachment is depleting understory vegetation and dewatering the landscape. We plan to thin the trees and follow their removal with reseeding and planting native understory plants. Noxious weeds will also be addressed with spot spraying with an herbicide. This project is intended to include adjacent public lands is in future years.
