Posted by Harley G. Shaw

The purpose of this study was to compare current woodland density and distribution in and around the dry upper Verde River watershed in northwestern Arizona with conditions prior to Anglo settlement Historic conditions were assessed using early photographs and early diaries and reports The expedition led by Amiel Weeks Whipple was retraced and areas described in 1854 comThe purpose of this study was to compare current woodland density and distribution in and around the dry upper Verde River watershed in northwestern Arizona with conditions prior to Anglo settlement Historic conditions were assessed using early photographs and early diaries and reports The expedition led by Amiel Weeks Whipple was retraced and areas described in 1854 compared with the present Diaries and reports of members of the Sitgreaves 1851 and Ives 1858 expeditions, Francis Aubry 1857 , Edward Beale, John Marion 1870 , and Edgar Mearns were also used to assess presettlement woodland conditions Photographs from 1867, 1871, 1910, and 1917 were repeated between 1995 and 1999 Based upon these early sources, I hypothesize that the aerial distribution of woodlands have not changed greatly since 1851, although densities within many stands have increased I conclude that at least three dense stands of woodland of unknown extent existed in the study area as early as 1851.
