Strip Planting for Flood Control
Abstract:Floods have caused tremendous damage in the territory represented by the Allegheny Section of the Society of American Foresters. For example, the March 1936 flood in Pennsylvania alone caused physical and direct flood losses estimated at 212 million dollars.3 Although man cannot prevent floods such as that of March 1936, he can, to a great extent, take measures to minimize their effects.
