Mr. Reddick “Red” Cartwright, his wife, and ten children came to #Arizona in 1876, through the Oregon Trail. By 1887, Red bought 65,000 acres near #SevenSprings, which he named Cartwright Ranch. Red and one of his sons (Jackson) established the #CartwrightRanch into one of the largest ranches in the #Southwest. It kept Cave Creek going as a ranching town after the #gold rush died. Some say that the Cartwright family's #ranching business was key in keeping #CaveCreek afloat. Jack Jr., Jackson’s son, took over the ranch and eventually turned it over to his son, Jack Cartwright III. By the time the Cartwright Ranch was sold in 1980, the #Ranch had grown to a whopping 5,600 head of #cattle!!

Did you know that after a wildfire the chance of regeneration from a #saguaro drops down to 1%?
Check out more interesting #conservation facts by trying our #TuesdayTrivia Quiz!
As we start to look at #regeneration and what it takes in the #sonorandesert, here are some helpful tips on what to do with trees, shrubs and native plants after a #wildfire.
Although trees and #shrubs will likely appear dead or dying, many may be able to recover in time. There's a good chance that native #seeds on your property are still alive and will #germinate.
Old and new #vegetation provides protection to the #soil and #conserves moisture. Tree and shrub roots are highly efficient at holding the soil in place. For #trees and #plants that must be removed, remove only the portion above the soil surface. Try not to remove the roots or the soil around the roots.
