Fence Posts

Uses for juniper in the Mojave Desert
Junipers were cut by early settlers for both firewood and fence posts. Even today one can find a few of these posts still standing as they resist decay almost as well as redwood. If you look at the debris under the juniper bush, you might see openings to animal burrows. But, please do not disturb anything. In the live juniper to the right, the pile of twigs is a wood rat's nest, there is a great many throughout the park. See how many you can spot. Also check out the juniper stump to see the growth rings where the lens cannot.
