Description: The Beaver Creek experimental watershed, located in north-central Arizona, was established in 1956 in response to public concerns that the flow of streams and the amount of livestock forage on watersheds in the Salt-Verde River Basins were being reduced by increasing densities of ponderosa pine saplings and pinyon-juniper trees. Natural resource responses to the manipulation of ponderosa pine forests by various silvicultural treatments and by conversion techniques of pinyon-juniper woodlands to herbaceous covers were determined. Results of studies have shown that changes in vegetation cover can produce short-term changes in streamflow from the ponderosa pine type and limited amounts from a herbicide treatment of pinyon-juniper. Vegetation modifications on upstream watersheds can be designed to provide forage, wildlife, timber, and amenity values required by society in some optimal combination. The implications of results from the Beaver Creek watershed studies are not confined to the Southwest, but are of national and international interest. The history of research and watershed description are provided along with a complete listing of scientific publications relating to the Beaver Creek Watershed.

Keywords: Arizona, ponderosa pine, pinyon-juniper woodlands, semi-arid watersheds, watershed management, water yield
