A combination of factors has played against mule deer populations, but a crucial piece of the mule deer’s winter food supply, mahogany, has been a critical player. We will be cutting Ponderosa pine, Douglas-fir, and juniper that grow much faster than mahogany. And as they grow, their canopies can also block out the sun and choke out the mahogany. The species is shade-intolerant, meaning it will die if it doesn’t get copious amounts of sunlight. When it’s infringed upon by an overstory of conifers that block out the sun, it withers away.
Please respond if you are able to attend.
Items Needed- Gloves, loppers, pruning shears,
