Healthy soil is essential for all natural resources. Soil conservation is the practice of conserving the integrity of the soil during any resource operations. Soil is a porous medium, composed of mineral particles, organic matter, organisms, liquids, and gases. Maintaining forest floor, topsoil layers, and soil structure is necessary to preserve long-term soil productivity and hydrologic function (the soil?s capacity to receive, store, and transmit water). Maintaining natural drainage and road drainage is vital to successful soil (and water) conservation.
