Description: Harvesting timber on lands devoted primarily to watershed management may alter, for better or worse, many features of a forested watershed. One such feature is forest humus. The beneficial role of forest humus in watershed management is widely recognized. A protective mantle of humus serves to cushion the impact of rain, to impede surface runoff, to restrict soil freezing, to favor infiltration, and to store certain amounts of rainfall.
