Introduction To Forest Soils and Using the Web Soil Survey


Wednesday, March 1, 2017 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

The soil is one of the most important resources in your forest, and a key factor in forest productivity. Understanding the soil types and characteristics in your forest is critical for management planning because soil provides water storage, aeration, nutrients, plant anchorage, and suitable environments for soil organisms. This class will give you an introduction to soil morphology, landform origin, soil classification, and nutrient cycling. You will also learn how to use the Web Soil Survey to find and interpret this information for your property and identify risks associated with soil disturbance and potential soil productivity losses.
