"In 1994, the Camp Creek Paired Watershed Study was initiated to provide long term, verifiable data which would be collected systematically to test the hypothesis, "does the removal of western juniper change the hydrologic function of a watershed"? The Camp Creek Paired Watershed Study occurred in two watersheds, Mays and Jenson, which are located side by side. The study area is located about 60 miles southeast of Prineville, Oregon. Each watershed is approximately 260 acres in size. Approximately 20 percent of the total study area is in private ownership with the remainder under the management of the Prineville District, Bureau of Land Management. In October of 2005, following 11 years of monitoring various parameters (vegetation, ground water, spring flow, soil moisture, etc.), all "post-European aged trees", those trees whose approximate age was less than 140 years old, were cut in the Mays watershed. The trees in Jensen were left uncut and thus Jensen became the "control" watershed"--Agency website.
