Abstract: This report reviews past scientific research to determine whether forests have any noise reduction effects for blast noise from artillery training or explosions. Unfortunately, there has been very little relevant work that would contribute to answering this question. For military noise sources, the main frequencies of interest are below 100 Hz. Most of the past investigations have been done at high frequencies using low-amplitude continuous wave noise sources rather than high-amplitude impulsive sources. For these reasons, additional measurements will be needed to determine the effect of forests on artillery and blast noise.
