DescriptionSeeding of grass and other herbaceous cover is a recognized method of reducing soil washing on old logging roads, trails, decks, and other disturbed areas. It is done to protect the quality of water supplies and, in the case of roads that are to be used again, to preserve them for use during the next logging operation. The successful use of chaff (from local harvest operations) to do this on the Fernow Experimental Forest near Parsons, W. Va. has been reported.
