This includes the "smooth triangle" of lightly eroded hardwood forest (perhaps grazing lands, savannah-like in 1933 with scattered trees) at the left of the image, now hardwood forest, and the more heavily eroded lands to the right, now pine forest.

  • Setting & Research

    Research area 8 was initiated on 21 November 2016, when four soil pits were dug to allow relatively easy access to soil and roots down to 2-m depth. Two of the pits are in the hardwood forest, two in the pine forest. These were intensively sampled over the course of a few weeks, then refilled. We have installed two vegetation plots, 1 in pine forest, 1 in hardwood forest, but no other infrastructure.
