Title: Soil variation and sampling intensity under red pine and aspen in Minnesota.
Author: Alban, David H.;

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)
Description: In red pine or aspen stands only two soil samples were needed to estimate (+/- 10%, 95% confidence) pH, bulk density, or sand, but 25 to 60 samples were required to estimate N, P, K, Ca, Mg, available water, or silt + clay. To estimate most forest floor properties required 30 to 50 samples in red pine stands, but only about half as many in aspen stands.
Keywords: Pinus resinosa, Populus tremuloides, red pine, aspen, soil sampling, forest floor, forest soils
