LONG-TERM SEDIMENTATION EFFECTS OF DIFFERENT PATTERNS OF TIMBER HARVESTING

By R. R. Ziemer, J. Lewis, T. E. Lisle and R. M. Rice

Abstract

ABSTRACT It is impractical to address the long-term effect of forest management strategies on erosion, sedimentation, and the resultant damage to fish habitat experimentally because to do so would require studying large watersheds for a century or more. Monte Carlo simulations were conducted on three hypothetical 10 000 ha, fifth-order forested watersheds. One watershed was left undisturbed, one was completely clearcut and roaded in a decade, and one was cut at the rate of 1 % each year. Each cutting strategy was repeated in succeeding centuries
