Forest Soil Problems in the Piedmont Plateau
The problems concerned with the relation between soil characteristics and timber growing have received only sporadic attention from investigators in the United States until very recently. Even now, only a few individuals are able to devote all or a part of their time to forest soil research. Research in forestry has been going through the measurement and inventory stage; little attention being given to the complicated problems involved in the interaction between the soil and the forest. Many elaborate and involved investigations on growth, yield, and reforestation have been made; but their objectives have largely been the measurement of an existing condition without attempting to determine why it obtains.
