Topsoil Changes in Coniferous Plantations
Abstract:The establishment of forest plantations has been advocated and practised as a remedy for soil erosion on abandoned farm lands. Opinions have been advanced concerning the ability of plantations to alter the soil of the planted site, but the literature contains very little information based on actual observation or experiment. Moreover, it should be remembered that any observation is valuable only for the same local climate and for the same soil type, humus type, and forest type in which it was made.
