Some Soil Erosion Effects on Forest Soil Productivity

  1. G. O. Klock2

Abstract

The many factors influencing the sensitivty of forest and range soils to erosion have been extensively studied. These studies have not, however, produced an accepted method to evaluate potential erosion effects on forest site productivity. A bioassay technique is suggested and its use demonstrated to make this evaluation. The general expectation is that forest soils are intolerant to erosion. Although the bioassay technique does not provide a soil loss tolerance T-value for productivity, it does show some forest soils may be less sensitive to nutrient loss through erosion.
