Abstract: The predicted environmental and economic effects of partial chaparral conversion for increased water yield on an experimental watershed in the Prescott National Forest, Arizona, are examined using a systems optimization approach. Resulting management implications and recommendations are proposed. The linear programming model presented here is based on ongoing experimental results obtained by the USDA Rocky Mountain Forest and Range Experiment Station at Arizona State University, and by the Prescott National Forest.
