Abstract:Soil disturbances created by thinning systems on a fine sandy loam and silty clay loam during wet and dry soil conditions were examined. The extent of areal disturbance, rutting, and bulk density increased and macroporosity decreased as soil moisture and trafficking increased. Scheduling thinning during dry weather and minimizing the crossing of planting beds with equipment reduced soil disturbance. South. J. Appl. For. 11(2):110-112.
