Historical uses of Great Basin pinyon-juniper woodlands



Historical uses of Great Basin pinyon-juniper woodlands



Society for Range Management, 33rd Annual Meeting, San Diego, California, February 11-14, 1980, Abstracts and Position Statements: p. 7



The pinyon-juniper woodlands of the Great Basin were a vital source of wood products for the mining industry from the 1860's to the 1920's. Pinyon and juniper were cut extensively for the production of charcoal, the only available fuel or energy source for the smelters of central Nevada. Firewood, fencing, and sundry ranching and mining uses were also important.
