In the mid-1980s, Experimental Project 0995 (EP0995) was established to investigate conifer seedling survival and growth responses to various site-preparation techniques in sub-boreal and boreal British Columbia. This technical report is intended to advise researchers of the availability of a file report describing unpublished EP0995 soils results, and to describe how to access EP0995 soils and foliar data files relating to both published and unpublished work. References to a selection of publications related to EP0995, in particular those that fully describe methodologies related soils and foliar data and the associated results, are also included. The EP0995 project has generated numerous publications concerning conifer survival and growth responses to site preparation up to 25 years post-planting (Boateng et al. 2006, 2009, 2011; McClarnon et al. 2016; Powelson et al. 2016; Bedford et al. 2017). At three of the sites ? Bednesti in the Stuart variant of the dry, warm Sub-Boreal Spruce subzone (SBSdw3); Inga Lake in the moist, warm Boreal White and Black Spruce subzone (BWBSmw); and Tanli in the Kluskus variant of the moist, cold SBS subzone (SBSmc3) ? soils and foliar data were also regularly collected to examine the long-term effects of site preparation on soil chemical and physical properties and tree nutrition. Soils and foliar results for Bednesti, Inga Lake, and Tanli have been published where comprehensive sampling and analysis for soil bulk density, soil chemistry, and foliar nutrition were done in a given year.
