Models for predictions of soil compaction following forest traffic represent important decision tools for forest managers in order to choose the best management practices for preserving soil physical quality. In agricultural soil compaction research, analytical models are widely used for this purpose. Our objective was to assess the ability of an analytical model to predict forest soil compaction under forwarder traffic. We used the results from two experimental sites set up in north-eastern… CONTINUE READING
