Effects of Brush Management on Water Budget and Water Quantity, Honey Creek State Natural Area

Woody vegetation, including ashe juniper (Juniperus ashei), has encroached on areas in central Texas that were historically oak grassland savannah. Encroachment of woody vegetation is generally attributed to overgrazing and fire suppression. Removing ashe juniper and allowing native grasses to reestablish in the area as a brush management conservation practice might change the hydrology in the...
