Description: Soil management is the key to successful hardwood management because soil properties are probably the most important determinants of forest productivity. Because of the lack of soil uniformity, however, many foresters have become frustrated with attempts to relate soil to satisfactory growth. Since soil scientists have been unable to predict site quality for trees in terms of straightforward, measurable soil properties, some forest managers are wondering whether it is worthwhile to consider soil in discriminating between sites.
