Abstract:On 40 streamside buffer strips in the Cascade Mountains of western Oregon, stability was a function of one vegetation and six topographic variables, and shading was related to three characteristics of buffer strips and one of adjacent clearcuts. Prediction equations were developed from these relationships to aid assessment of stream protection in proposed harvest designs and to aid rapid evaluation of design modifications. Options can be quantified so that the most suitable design may be chosen.
