    In cooperation with the US Forest Service and NRCS, we initiated a study on dynamic soil properties in volcanic ash-influenced forest soils of northern Idaho. Field data were collected at 4 research sites by a team of scientists representing various agencies and are currently being processed and analyzed.   The deep black soil of much of northern and central Illinois has unusual richness, and its quality for agriculture is among the finest in the world. The soils of the southern third of the state are far less suited for farming. Illinois is drained by as many as .

Idaho has the largest stand of white pine forest left in the United States. Its clear, straight grain makes it excellent for lumber and wooden matches. Next in value are the ponderosa or western yellow pine and the Douglas fir. These are excellent for lumber and timbers.

Another interesting and valuable Idaho tree is the western red cedar. Organic soils mostly occur in bogs north of Coeur d'Alene and in parts of eastern Idaho. They may contain minor amounts of mineral material deposited by floods or wind. These parent materials were subject to the other factors of soil formation - climate and living organisms modified by topography over a.

Much of this area, especially in Idaho and northern Washington, also contains weakly developed forest soils such as those of granitic and aeolian (ashcap) origin as well as skeletal soils of several other rock types.

[Kenneth E Neiman; Intermountain Research Station (Ogden, Utah)]. Soil quality assessments are essential for determining impacts on belowground microbial community structure and function. We evaluated the suitability of active carbon (C), a rapid field test, as an indicator of soil biological quality in five paired forest stands (clear cut harvested 40 years prior and unharvested) growing on volcanic ash-cap soils in northern Idaho.

YOU ARE A SHORT-SEASON, HIGH-ALTITUDE GARDENER IF: You live in Idaho at an elevation above 4, feet, OR Your USDA hardiness zone is 4 or lower, OR You have a frost-free growing season of days or less.

The primary soils are Entisols with Inceptisols occupying the benchlands and ridges and Mollisols common in areas with more level topography. Immediately above the ponderosa pine zone from 2, m to 3, m elevation is the Douglas fir-aspen forest. This forest type occurs primarily in Colorado, Idaho, Wyoming, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.The term forest health is commonly used to indicate the condition of a particular forest or stand and is in constant flux; after all, the nature of nature is change.
