DescriptionManagement practices necessary for sustaining long-term soil productivity (LTSP) afforest lands are being defined from a network of coordinated, long-term experiments established in vartous ecosystems across the United States and British Columbia according to the same basic study plan. The study was established in the Ozark Region of southeastem Missouri in Shannon County in 1995. It is being led by Forest Service Research, with cooperation from the Mark Twain National Forest, Missouri's Department of Conservation and Department of Natural Resources, the Natural Resources Conservation Service, and the University of Missouri. The impacts of treatments on soil productivity and site quality will be periodically evaluated over the life of the regenerating stands at the study site. This report summarizes some of the pre-treatment data, mortality, and nutrient concentrations in herbaceous vegetation.
