Date: 1987

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: 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
