Erosion was not considered a serious problem in the early 1950's in the U.S. Logging operations were concentrated mainly in the better timber stands along beaches and in valley bottoms. In the mid-1950's, large-scale clearcutting began to include steeper slopes. Now areas having a high erosion hazard are being logged. One apparent consequence of large-scale logging is an increase in soil movement (Bishop & Stevens, 1964).
