Soil-Collecting Trenches as Substitutes for Temporary Check Dams in Reforesting Gullies
Abstract:The reforesting of gullies is a difficult and relatively expensive job at best. The trials of soil-collecting trenches as substitutes for temporary check dams in reforesting gullies has not yet progressed sufficiently to warrant final conclusions, but the results obtained so far indicate that the method may find considerable use on erosion control projects. Furthermore, it is likely that additional study of the method will result in improvements and modifications to broaden its sphere of usefulness.
