Title: Relation of snowpack Accumulation to Red Pine Stocking

Author: Hansen, Edward A.;

Date: 1969

Source: Research Note NC-85. St. Paul, MN: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, North Central Forest Experiment Station

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)

Description: A snow accumulation study was conducted in a 33-year-old red pine plantation thinned to different stocking levels. Snowpack water content increased an average of 2 percent for each 10 square feet of basal area reduction, within the range of 60 to 180 square feet of basal area. Reducing plantation stocking from 180 to 60 square feet of basal area per acre would result in 1.4 to 1.9 inches of additional water in a winter when 6 to 8 inches of precipitation were received.

Keywords: snowpack, red pine
