As a consequence, large scale afforestation efforts usually reduce ground water. It has also been used, in the early eighties, to provide information for the Centre for Agricultural Strategy's investigations into the feasibility of proposals to increase greatly the proportion of upland forestry in Britain.

Subsequently it has been applied in many studies into the effects of afforestation on water resources in the by: Afforestation is the best technique used to minimize the greenhouse effect. Therefore, there is constant necessity to develop afforestation programs in order to preserve and protect the forestry including the wasteland.

A massive afforestation program is required to meet the Effects of upland afforestation on water resources book demand of fuel wood, timber and fodder. Robinson, M.,“The effect of pre-afforestation drainage on the streamflow and water quality of a small upland catchment”.

Non Technical Summary This project investigates the hydrologic and water quality effects of afforestation on pasture, abandoned cropland and native grassland in Uruguay, and of the production of energy crops including those interplanted in forest plantations in North Carolina, Mississippi, and Alabama.

Growing trees and other crops to produce forest and energy products is a promising method. Since the mid fifties, when Frank Law published the results of his studies from Stocks Reservoir, a controversy has raged concerning the effects of upland afforestation on evaporation and water resources of the UK.

Afforestation does not always have positive effects on the water supply. The seasonal and annual water yield from forested areas largely depends on forest management, covering selection of tree species, forest structure, and density.

70 variables controlling the water balance, such as precipitation, vegetation growth, and ET a, is a 71 challenge to predicting land use change impacts and development of water management policies.

However, at a time when our water resources are under great stress, it is essential that we anticipate and plan for the impact of afforestation on these resources. This report provides the scientific background to help land and water resource managers and the plantation industry better understand the effects of afforestation on catchment runoff.

Francis, J.A. Taylor, Article. Afforestation is the establishment of a forest or stand of trees (forestation) in an area where there was no previous tree cover. Many government and non-governmental organizations directly engage in programs of afforestation to create forests, increase carbon capture.

Sometimes special tools, such as a tree planting bar, are used to make planting of trees easier and faster. Concern for the deleterious effects of spruce afforestation of upland moorland water catchments used for supply purposes and hydroelectric power generation led to research involving both process and The results and implications for water resources are presented in this book.

Over the last century, afforestation in Ireland has increased from 1% of the land area to 10%, with most plantations on upland drained blanket peatlands. This land use change is considered to have altered the hydrological response and water balance of upland catchments with implications for water by: 7.

This project will investigate the hydrologic and water quality effects of afforestation on pasture, abandoned cropland and native grassland in Uruguay, and of the production of energy crops including those interplanted in forest plantations in North Carolina.

Growing trees and other crops to produce forest and energy products is a promising method of improving local economies and contributing. Watershed management is the process of guiding and organizing the use of the land and other resources on a watershed to provide desired goods and services without harming soil and water resources.

The interrelationships among land use, soil and water and the linkages between uplands and downstream areas are recognized in this concept.

(source: Nielsen Book Data) Summary Since the mid fifties, when Frank Law published the results of his studies from Stocks Reservoir, a controversy has raged concerning the effects of upland afforestation on evaporation and water resources of the UK.

Over the past 40 years, south-central Chile has experienced important land-use-induced land cover changes, with massive conversion from native forests (NF) to Pinus radiata and Eucalyptus spp. exotic forest plantations (FP). Several case studies have related this conversion to a reduction in water supply within small catchments (< ha).

In this work, we explore the impacts of NF and Cited by: 4. Agricultural land management requires strategies to reduce impacts on soil and water resources while maintaining food production.
