To determine the long-term effects of broadcast burning on the physical and chemical properties of forest soils, soil samples were collected from paired burned and unburned plots established between 1947 and 1953 after clearcutting in the western Cascade Mountains of Oregon and Washington. Soils were analyzed for organic matter, total nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and calcium, as well as permeability and wettability. Results failed to show statistically significant differences between properties of burned and unburned soils, suggesting that broadcast burning does not have a lasting effect on chemical and physical properties of soil. Forest Sci. 25:427-439.
