Summary

The aim of this project is to investigate harvesting effects on soil carbon stock in old-growth boreal forests in north-west Sweden. Soil carbon stock is quantified in the humus layer and down to 50 cm in the mineral soil at 23 sites of adjacent old-growth and younger stands in northern Sweden. Carbon stock in above ground biomass is also quantified. Other components measured or assessed are site index, bulk density and stoniness.
