Description: The Hopi reservation is located in northeast Arizona (Fig. 1) where the tribe has been working to eradicate exotic salt-cedar (Tamarix ramosissima Leneb.[Tamaricaceae]) and Russian-olive (Elaeagnus angustifolia L.[Elaeagnaceae]) from streams and wetlands. Although only comprising about 2% of the reservation, these riparian and wetland communities are ecologically and culturally valuable for livestock grazing, wildlife habitat, traditional gathering, and ceremonial use (Lomadafkie, 2003). Even though the initial eradications were successful, the salt-cedar is already resprouting. Consequently, the tribe asked the U.S.D.A. Forest Service for help in propagating willows and cottonwoods to plant in these areas at the first Intertribal Nursery Council meeting in 2001.
