Detrimental Effects of Wet Weather Logging
Abstract:Diameter growth of loblolly pine on imperfectly drained silt loam soils in Arkansas was reduced by wet-weather logging in which traffic passed along three or four sides of the tree. Dry-weather logging did not affect growth. Traffic in wet weather increased the soil's bulk density and decreased total and macropore space.
