Abstract

The swift spread of eastern redcedar poses a number of problems for grasslands and wildlife habitats, which are already under strong pressure in the Midwest. This study documents the true nature of redcedar expansion in this area and uses that data to educate landowners about management practices aimed at slowing the spread of this pernicious woody species.
