The effect of partial and clearcutting on streamflow at Deadhorse Creek, Colorado


Troendle, C. A.; King, R. M. 1987. The effect of partial and clearcutting on streamflow at Deadhorse Creek, Colorado. Journal of Hydrology. 90: 145-157.

Two subalpine forest subdrainages of Deadhorse Creek, Colarado, USA were used to demonstrate the comparable impact on water yield of two tree-harvesting practices. Of the 40 ha North Fork subdrainage 36% was clearcut commercially using five-tree height circular openings. In contrast, 40% of the basal area on the 41 ha Unit 8 was removed by partial cutting in the first step of a three-step shelterwood cut.

Keywords: partial and clearcutting, streamflow, subalpine forest subdrainages, watershed, Deadhorse Creek, Colarado, Fraser Experimental Forest
