Description: Reports results of soil density and soil moisture measurements on two roads in the central Appalachians over a 30-month period. Density increased slightly during the measurement period at most locations. Almost all of the density changes occurred during the first few months after construction. Moisture content decreased during the first few months after construction, then fluctuated with precipitation amounts.
Keywords: forest roads, soil density, soil moisture, central Appalachians
