  author={Scott W. Woods and Robert Ahl and Jason Sappington and W. John McCaughey},
Alternative silvicultural treatments such as thinning can be used to restore forested watersheds and reduce wildfire hazards, but the hydrologic effects of these treatments are not well defined. We evaluated the effect of two shelterwood-with-reserve silvicultural prescriptions, one leaving residual trees evenly distributed (SE) and the second leaving residual trees in groups (SG), both with 50% basal area removal, on snow accumulation in lodgepole pine stands at the Tenderfoot Creek… CONTINUE READING
