As the first and only nationally consistent effort to moni-tor forest soil quality in the United States, this program provides critical baseline information on the current status of the soil resource and the potential effects of natural.

Forest soils, where soil formation has been influenced by forest vegetation, are generally characterized by deeply rooted trees, significant ‘litter layers’ or O horizons, recycling of organic matter and nutrients, including wood, and wide varieties of soil-dwelling organisms (Figure 1).There are also soils now covered with forest vegetation, often plantations, on lands that were not.

Much attention has been given to above ground biomass and its potential as a carbon sink, but in a mature forest ecosystem 40 to 60 percent of the stored carbon is below ground.

As increasing numbers of forests are managed in a wide diversity of climates and soils, the importance of forest soils as a potential carbon sink grows.
