Abstract: Changes in the physical, chemical and
hydrological properties of a silt loam soil under deciduous
coppiced woodland as a result of different intensities of
compaction were studied. Repeated compaction only
affected organic matter content and the bulk density of the
topsoil. However compaction did reduce the infiltration
capacity and increase the penetration resistance of the soil.
Root development, dry root and green matter production
were significantly affected by repeated compaction,
especially in Phleum pratense. Assessment of the
effectiveness of the techniques used in the analysis
indicated that measurements of infiltration and penetration
resistance were the most significant. Growth tests were
effective only with species sensitive to compaction and only
up to 50 days, after sowing.
