Forest Management on Municipal Water Source Areas
Abstract:Research is rapidly dispelling many of the fallacies that long beclouded our information on forest influences. These findings have immediate and highly practical application to management of municipal watersheds. It is rare to find a watershed forester who displays in his management program a working knowledge of these newly discovered relations. As about one-sixth of our forest areas serves directly or indirectly as watersheds for municipal supplies, the importance of foresters understanding forest and water relations is obvious.
