"Fading Gold: The Decline of Aspen in the West" is a 12-minute video/DVD available from the Rocky Mountain Research Station. The species has declined across the West from 9 million acres to less than 4 million acres today. For every acre of aspen lost, so is a prime source of water, a productive habitat for wildlife, a valuable source of livestock forage, and one of our most scenic treasures.
