Influence of Aspen, Young Lodgepole Pine, and Open Grassland Types Upon Factors Affecting Water Yield
Burned and cutover lands in the Rocky Mountains present a distinct problem in watershed management. Many of these areas support a cover of grass or aspen rather than their original stand of lodgepole pine or spruce. Generally the new cover provides adequate protection from erosion, but there has been question regarding its other watershed qualities. In order to evaluate some of these qualities this preliminary study was undertaken in Colorado. The results indicate that, from the standpoint of water available for streamflow, aspen and grass are probably superior to a dense coniferous forest.
