Description A stream temperature model was used to examine the effects of several riparian buffer widths on stream temperature. The study was requested by the Small Forest Landowners Workgroup. The results will be used to develop a template for the harvest of hardwood-dominated riparian stands in order to facilitate the regeneration of conifer-dominated stands.
