Erosion: A Problem in Forestry
Abstract:The necessity of meintaing a soil cover to check erosion, aside from its effect on water conservation, is emphasized in this paper and held up to the forester as a problem requiring his careful study. On badly eroded land the forester will have the dual job of devising means to check erosion and starting a new forest. Reference is made to experimental determinations of the influence of soil cover upon run-off and erosion.
