Comparative Values of Certain Forest Cover Types in Accumulating and Retaining Snowfall
Abstract:Although the forest, generally speaking, has a wide range of values and uses, yet specifically no one type of forest is equally valuable for all purposes, and for a specific purpose. Some one type is usually more valuable than others. These principles Mr. Maule points out most interestingly in his report on the relative snow holding capacities of the several commoner forest types in Connecticut, where, in that region, the primary purpose is water conservation. His findings would seem to be worthy of careful consideration.
