Abstract

Grazing on the 13 million acres of mixed conifer forests in California could provide an income through grazing fees, reduce fire hazard, and enhance tree growth—while providing more efficient livestock production for foothill ranches.The heterogeneous mixture of forage in mixed conifer forests can be well-utilized by grazing cattle throughout the year, particularly if herds are evenly distributed in the forests.
