Soil-Timber Species Mix
Abstract:A case study of matching soils to tree species indicates a potential for a 60-percent increase in sawtimber yield. Utilizing other soil and forest management practices such as fertilization, water table manipulation, and tree improvement programs, additional gains may be possible. Muliple-use considerations will reduce output. However, with this reduction there still exists the potential of increasing output between 20 to 40 percent by matching species to soil potential.
