The Quiet Invations. Since Euro-American settlement, western juniper has steadily encroached on the eastern and central Oregon landscape, taking over productive grasslands, aspen stands, and other ecosystems. To improve water quality and quantity, restore native ecosystems, and provide for the needs of both livestock and wildlife, there has been an increasing effort to control juniper in Eastern and Central Oregon.

This DVD explores the history, science, and management concepts behind the decision by many local landownders, and federal and state agencies to actively manage their lands to confront the juniper issue.

Through interviews with local ranchers, land managers, scientists, and government officials, "The Quiet Invasion" explores why the decision was made to cut down juniper on some sites, and to use prescribed fires and other management techniques when necessary.
