Weeks Act related Forest Primeval article by Ayres 1906

June 8th, 2010 by CfRP

“Philip Ayres wrote this article for the March 24, 1906 issue of Outlook magazine. It outlines a trip to the southern Appalachians and to Randolph in the White Mountains. A map of the proposed eastern national Forest Reserves is of interest.” -David Govatski

Do Forests Hold Back Floods?

June 8th, 2010 by CfRP

“Attached is a fascinating 8 page article by Benjamin Brooks from the April 1914 issue of Technical World magazine. This is worth reading in relation to the forest and stream flow controversy that was one of the perceptions behind the passage of the Weeks Act. “When mountains and hillsides are denuded of timber are spring freshets inevitable”? The answer is more complex than you might think and the engineers perspective in 1914 on the issue is worth considering.” -David Govatski
