    Description

    Effects of watershed management practices on suspended sediment concentrations from ponderosa pine forests and pinyon-juniper woodlands in the Southwestern United States are examined. Completely cleared and strip-cut ponderosa pine watersheds produced higher sediment concentrations than the control. Likewise, cabled and herbicide-treated pinyon-juniper watersheds yielded higher sediment-laden streamflows than the control. Soil disturbances associated with vegetative manipulations on these watersheds are the assumed causal factor. Management implications of the reported effects are described.
