Abstract:
In 1973, as part of research addressing the timing, volume, and source of streamflows, a 22.34 ha watershed on the Fernow Experimental Forest was planted with Norway spruce (Picea abies). This publication describes the growth and productivity of this unusual Norway spruce plantation over the intervening 45 years, including information on stand density, incursion of native hardwoods, and reaction to a major disturbance, Superstorm Sandy in 2012.
