The Pinyon-Juniper Alliance is comprised of indigenous people and tribes, environmental groups, policy experts, scientists, and community members. We work to protect pinyon pine and juniper forests in the Western States and to change destructive BLM and Forest Service policy. Our methods include lobbying, public education, political pressure, and non-violent direct action.
“For half a century, Great Basin resource managers, blinded by a discredited ideology, have claimed that Pinyon pines and Junipers are evil invaders that must be replaced by grass and shrubs—the stuff cows eat.
Our elite environmental organizations have declined to get involved over mere millions-of-acres of deforestation, but finally the Pinyon-Juniper Alliance is challenging the unprofessionalism of BLM and the Forest Service. Cheers to the Alliance!”
