Abstract

    Soil samples are collected at two forested sites in Vermont to analyze soil samples and publish the results. Permanent plot markers were established at the NRCS long-term soil monitoring plots. Vegetation samples were Included in 2002. Tree regeneration data was collected starting in 2007. Regeneration data was collected again in 2012.
