DescriptionSnowmelt overland flow was measured for one season from 10-year-old plantations of red pine, Norway spruce, European larch, and from old field control plots, on both north and south slopes. Pine and spruce plots produced more runoff than larch and old field plots; and south slope plots produced more runoff than north slope plots.
