The soil between your toes

Photo by Bill Klase

I have had the pleasure of working in forests on a wide variety of soil types.  The ones I have the most experience on are the clay-loam at the family farm and the sand that makes up our home soil.  What I have learned is that you can’t ignore what is under your feet when planning your forestry activities.  That means knowing what your soil type is before doing any tree planting, choosing which will be your dominant trees now and into the future, and deciding the best time of year to harvest trees.
