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.

streams, (6) effects on aquatic habitat and biota, and (7) effects on forested wetlands. A final section addresses the water-quality effects associated with silvicultural management intensity and specific site-preparation techniques, such as fertilizer or herbicide application . 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.

Effects of Upland Afforestation (IH Report) [Richard C. Johnson] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. The effects of upland afforestation on water spatial variability of upland meteorological resources have been studied in two upland parameters which control evaporation rates; catchments, Kirkion and Monachyle, at Balquhidder in Highland Scotland.
These 4. To determine, in typical Scottish Highland. MODELLING THE EFFECT OF UPLAND AFFORESTATION ON WATER RESOURCES (BALQUHIDDER) Report to The Scottish Office Environment Department This report is an official document prepared under contact between The Scottish Office Environment Department and the Natural Environment Research Council.

In the lower regions of the páramo grasslands (– m a.s.l.), Pinus radiata and Pinus patula plantations have become widespread.

Separation of these effects from (increasing) climate variability may further complicate the analysis. While there is no conclusive evidence, let alone guidelines on the overall effects of upland management on downstream water availability, initial applications of the.
Research has identified that there are three main potential impacts of forestry on water resources in Ireland i.e. acidification, siltation and eutrophication.
Water shortages due to the presence of forests have generally not been an issue in Ireland as we experience. The effect of pre-afforestation drainage on the streamflow and water quality of a small upland catchment.
Institute of Hydrology Report no. Institute of Hydrology Report no. Google ScholarCited by: 9. Forests consume more water than other land use types but also improve peak flow control in wetter environments. 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 increasing 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”. Institute of Hydrology, Rep Cited by: 1.
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.
