Forestry in Hawaii for Water Conservation
Abstract:Hawaii practises forestry to increase water resources rather than to add to wood supplies, and one quarter of the land surface is managed for such purpose. Since the water comes mainly from forest areas, its quantity and timeliness are vitally affected by the character of the forest. The relation between water resources and forest cover in Hawaii is particularly intimate and delicate and the natural balance must be carefully maintained to prevent its disturbance. The author describes his problems and his organization for managing the protection forests.
