Abstract:As society looks to our nation's forests as sources of energy, there is a risk of increased runoff and erosion. This report gives an overview of watershed processes, discusses the impacts of biomass removal on those processes, provides some guidelines to minimize adverse impacts, and describes an approach for estimating the effects of biomass removal on soil erosion.

- Each regional journal of applied forestry focuses on research, practice, and techniques targeted to foresters and allied professionals in specific regions of the United States and Canada. The Western Journal of Applied Forestry covers the western United States, including Alaska, and western Canada; WJAF will also consider manuscripts reporting research in northern Mexico that has potential application in the southwestern United States.
