The first two experiments described in this report were designed to identify early signs of compaction-related stress in lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta), Douglas-fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), and white spruce (Picea glauca). A secondary objective was to examine the interaction of soil moisture and compaction on initial seedling growth. The third experiment was designed to examine the efforts of soil compaction on the composition of the soil atmosphere, and is continuing.
