    What causes soil compaction? Soil compaction is caused by tilling, harvesting, or grazing when the soils are wet. Soil water content influences compaction. A dry soil is much more resistant to compaction than a moist or wet soil. Other factors affecting compaction include the texture, pressure exerted, composition (texture, organic matter. Impact of Forest Operation on Soil Compaction – San Rossore Case Study. Acta Universitatis Agriculturae et Silviculturae Mendelianae Brunensis, 63(4): – The paper presents the assessment of compaction grade caused by machinery used in forest biomass for energy harvesting. The main aim was to determinate unaff ected soil conditions Cited by: 1.

    Soil compaction is a problem in many landscapes. A recent survey of arborists estimated that 40 percent of commercial and residential properties had an area of significant soil compaction near trees. Historically, grounds managers have had few options for correcting this problem. Fortunately, recent advances have made it easier to effectively treat compaction problems . But soil ruts, the modification of soil by the penetration of the soil by wheels or tracks because of a bearing capacity failure of the soil, is the focus of the current Forest Soils Conservation Guidelines. Soil rutting is of primary concern for several reasons: 1. Soil structure is destroyed and organic horizons mixed with mineral soil. This can.

    Soil damage on forest roads and landings includes the removal of the organic layer and topsoil, soil compaction, and erosion of the exposed soil. The soil damage affects hillslope infiltration and surface and subsurface flows. If significant, the resulting erosion. could be a major source ol- nutrient IOSS foP-he harvest (Binkley, ).
