Our erosion developed because of decades of overgrazing and Cedar proliferation.

Solid "Cedar" stands like this tend to turn an area to desert, which then erodes to bedrock with our flash floods. We threw some Osage Orange fruits down in the first brushpile, and we'll keep throwing things in there as we work.
