In recent years, interest has increased in restoring Oregon white oak (Quercus garryana Dougl. ex Hook.) and prairie landscapes in the Pacific Northwest, especially where elements of historical plant communities are intact. We evaluated the effect of alternative management scenarios on the extent and condition of Oregon white oak, the extent of prairie, and the harvest and standing volumes of Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii (Mirb.) Franco) within a 2934-ha portion of Fort Lewis, Washington (named the Tenalquot Planning Area for the purpose of the project). A landscape-level analysis of the scenarios was completed using a geographic information system, a forest growth model (ORGANON), and landscape visualization software (EnVision). The scenarios ranged from no active management to restoration of the historical extent of oak and prairies within the planning area. The results indicate that the window of opportunity for restoring oak and prairie landscapes in the Puget Sound lowlands and other regions is small, and aggressive management is needed to maintain or enhance these landscapes. The project demonstrates the value of landscape-level analyses and the use of new technologies for conveying the results of alternative management scenarios.

Oak-Prairie Wildlife Management Historical Perspective. The Oak-Prairie wildlife district, as the name implies, spans parts of 2 different ecoregions. The northern third of the district consists of what is typically considered Post Oak Savannah, whereas the remainder of the district lies in the Coastal Prairies.
This is an ecologically diverse. Alternative oak trees. If you are in the planning stages of new or updated landscaping, here are a couple of recommendations to consider.
Mexican white oak and lacey oak. The most scenic of these were the oak savannas of southwest Lower Michigan, which extended as far north as Newaygo county. A large area of dry prairie existed along the Detroit River, and the state's largest wet prairie occurred for 16 miles along Saginaw Bay from Quanicassee to nearly Bay Port and was three miles wide at its widest point.
Oak openings were found primarily on level to undulating topography, a landscape in which fires occurred frequently and spread rapidly and evenly. Fires prevented canopy closure and limited the dominance of woody vegetation.
Oak savanna and prairie. Oak and prairie habitats look very different across the Pacific Northwest, but they all face similar threats. That’s the conclusion that emerges from strategic action planning processes undertaken by local partnerships working on oak and prairie habitats from southern Washington to northern California.
Oak-Prairie Wildlife Management The border above illustrates 5 basic tools (axe, cow, plow, fire, and gun) used for managing wildlife communities. The key to managing natural resources is to use a holistic approach, where all of these Tools are applied to develop and maintain healthy ecosystems.
The Mazama pocket gopher is a notable resident of the Tenalquot Prairie Preserve, as shown by the extensive mounding across the preserve.
To better quantify the gopher’s occupancy, sampling of 25 meter plots across the preserve was conducted three times this fall to. Prairie Oak Landscape Elgin, Illinois We accept the following Our Service Area: Click the map below to view a larger image.
An oak tree is one of the most common species of trees in the Northern Hemisphere which includes North America. Oak trees come in two major prototypes — red oak trees and white oak trees.
Some oak trees have leaves that stay on the tree year-round (evergreen) and others have leaves that drop during dormancy (deciduous), plus they all bear the familiar acorn fruit.With two nurseries, over acres of trees and 35 years experience, we would like to help you get a great value for your landscaping dollar.
