Abstract

By the late 19th and early 20th century, extensive forest harvesting was occurring throughout the United States, often with little regard for natural resources. The effects of logging on the environment were relatively unknown, which contributed to rising environmental concerns. Relationships between forests and stream water yield were of particular interest, because of speculation that logging exacerbated flooding and caused streams to dry up. Despite extensive monitoring and research over the last century, many aspects of the relationship between logging and streamflow remain unresolved and highly contentious.
