Project Overview

Soil carbon serves as a major reservoir for carbon storage in forests. Yet there is much unknown about how soil carbon varies with different soil and forest types, and much less known about how managing forests influences positive or negative changes in soil carbon. Soil sampling was done at 18 different sites in Vermont that were established in 2009/2010. These sites include Groton State Forest, Willoughby State Forest, Steam Mill Brook Wildlife Management Area, Coolidge State Forest, and Emerald Lake State Park.
