We evaluated fuel treatment effects on soil compaction in a managed Sierra Nevada mixed-conifer forest using a fully replicated study design with three treatments: Thin, Thin + Burn, and an. Jan 09,  · Soil compaction did not reduce tree growth universally in these 3- to 8-yr-old plantations. Effects were detrimental, insignificant, and beneficial for clayey, loamy, and sandy loam soils, respectively. Results show that compaction effects depend strongly on soil texture and soil water regime. This study evaluated the effects of a crawler tractor, a rubber tired skidder, and a torsion suspension vehicle on several soil and hydrologic properties in the western Sierra Nevada Mountains . The use of machinery on the forest site, however, can significantly alter some important soil properties and produce both onsite and offsite impacts on forest and related resources. Soil compaction is one commonly observed consequence of the use of machinery on forest sites.

The Value of Forest Soil Productivity. Sustainable Soil Productivity. Soil productivity is defined as the capacity of soil, in its normal environment, to support plant growth. Soil productivity is reflected in the growth of forest vegetation or the volume of organic matter produced on a site.
