Managing Texas Juniper with Prescribed Burning (ERM-046) Webpage uri icon


  • The management of juniper, commonly referred to as cedar, throughout Texas spans multiple species and regions, each requiring differing methods of managing the encroachment of these woody plants. Fire is one management method that is effective at managing juniper under the right conditions. However, the timing and intensity requirements for an effective fire are dependent on the species of juniper. This paper classifies juniper species as either resprouting or non-resprouting and provides general fire management recommendations for landowners and land managers.
