DescriptionThe effect of cutting on water depletion from a 150-cm soil mantle does not appear to have diminished by the 7th year after the trees were cut. Mean seasonal depletion was 41, 64, and 146 mm for all vegetation removed, woody vegetation only removed, and uncut treatments, respectively. After 4 years of regrowth, the original bare and clearcut treatments depleted only 21 and 35 percent as much water as the uncut forest.
