Soil compaction and forest floor removal influence fundamental soil processes that control forest productivity and sustainability. We investigated effects of soil compaction and forest floor removal on tree growth, N uptake and N status in ponderosa pine. Factorial combinations of soil compaction (non-compacted and compacted) and forest floor removal (forest floor present and no forest floor) were applied to three different surface soil textures. For studying N uptake, four trees from every… CONTINUE READING
