Not Deterimental
To Water Yield
At the Coweeta Forest Experi
ment station, near Franklin
studies on the effects of forests
md of forest-cutting are being
made, and some of the results
lire described by Charles R.
Hursh in an article publish?d
in the December issue of Amer
ican Forests magazine
Writing under the caption
Where Little Waters Write Big
Stories", Mr. Hursh tells h')W,
with the use ot scientific equip
ment permanently placed on the
forest, it is possible for the
streams and rains to produce
a minute-by-minute story
which will help cities, indus
trialists and farmers solve their
water problems.
"Many large municipal dud
industrial watersheds support
valuable timber, not being har
vested for fear of jeopardizing
the yf.eld and quality of the
water." Mr Hursh points out
Experiments on the forest, con
ducted by the Southeastern
Forest Experiment station,
where he Is In charge of forest
influence studies, show that
timber cutting is not detrimen
tal to water yield, If the soil is
undisturbed; in fact. It is pos
sible to remove timber so as to
increase water yields

he says "but ifhere the soil is 1
disturbed, as in the case of log

It is important, Mr. Hursh
points out to device a method ;
whereby timber can be harvest
ed on certain watersheds with- f
out damaging the water-savins '
qualities of the soil.
Another study on the Co
weeta forest shows that steep
slope farming destroys the soil's
ability to function as a regulat
or of water flow and water qual
ity, Generally, the effects of
land clearing for cultivation are
not noticeable for two or three i
