The Long-Term Soil Productivity (LTSP) Study (Ministry of Forests E.P.1148) seeks to understand the long-term impacts of organic matter removals and soil compaction on tree growth and other ecosystem processes (Powers et al.,1990). The core LTSP experimental design includes 3 levels of organic matter removal: - OM1: merchantable boles only (Photo 1) - OM2: merchantable boles + logging slash (Photo 2) - OM3: merchantable boles + slash + forest floor
