Watershed-management aspects of thinned young lodgepole pine stands


Goodell, B. C. 1952. Watershed-management aspects of thinned young lodgepole pine stands. Journal of Forestry. 50: 374-378.

The central section of the Rocky Mountains within Colorado and Wyoming is an important water-yielding area. Stream flow which originates in the mountains supplies water for irrigation, power generation, and domestic use. The actual source of most of this water is located above 8,000 feet in elevation. Here snows are heavy and water yields run as high as 24 inches per year.
