A model to estimate the resistance of flow due to various combinations of tall vegetation (such as trees) on the order of flow depths is given. An empirical curve by regression to estimate the flow resistance with large rigid roughness (short vegetation such as grasses) in the order of normal boundary roughness is developed. The relative effect of various combinations of tall vegetation on the reduction of sediment yields based on the reduction of flow rates is studied. This should be rather useful in determining the relative effect on sediment yields by clear cutting and other selective cutting of forest lumber. (Author)
