Forest Cover Retards Snow Melting
About fifty years ago there was widespread interest in forest influences. At that time few if any accurate data were available to show how forests modified various climatic factors. European data of questionable validity served as a basis for all discussions of this important subject. During recent years there has been a reawakening of interest in forest influences and carefully controlled studies now are being made. In the present instance it is shown that a forest cover will delay the melting of snow in the Pacific Northwest for a period of two weeks in the spring and that this delay greatly reduces the danger of spring freshets.
