The three levels of OM removal were defined as stem-only harvesting (OM1), whole-tree harvesting (OM2) and whole-tree harvesting plus forest floor removal (OM3), and resulted in average percent net carbon removal of 51±4 (95% confidence interval), 65±3 and 84±2, respectively (Marty Kranabetter, BC Ministry of Forests, personal communication). The three levels of soil compaction were defined as none (C0), moderate (C1) and severe (C2), and resulted in average percent increases in bulk density of 4±4, 20±4 and 19±4, respectively, when compared with the reference plots. Ten years after harvesting, the percent increase in bulk density in these soil systems remained at 4±5, 14±6 and 15±6, respectively.
On average, the uncompacted C0 treatments experienced an increase in bulk density equivalent to 20% of the maximum bulk density observed in C1.
