The Fernow Experimental Forest (FEF) was established to conduct research in forest and watershed management in the central Appalachians. The 1868-ha FEF, located south of Parsons, West Virginia, is administered by the Northern Research Station of the USDA Forest Service and provides a valuable point of comparison with the Coweeta Hydrologic Laboratory (CHL), located in the southern Appalachians. This chapter summarizes responses to clearcutting on four watersheds at FEF and compares the results to those from clearcutting on CHL Watershed & (WS 7).
