This report focuses upon erosion that contributes to non-point source pollution occurring in forested environments as a result of silvicultural activities. Specifically, the document discusses three topics: (1) silvicultural practices that are currently being applied throughout the United States with indications of how these practices may affect the rate of erosion, (2) a method for determining the cost-effectiveness of erosion, (2) a method for determining the cost-effectiveness of erosion controls that could mitigate or prevent the adverse effects of silvicultural practices, and (3) examples applying the described method for economic analyssis using information presented in (1). The information and outlined method are intended for forest managers and water quality planners to enhance analysis and improve decisions concerning the reduction of non-point pollution problems.
