Commenting is turned off until the next live offering of this course in Fall 2021.

The previous article referenced the Web Soil Survey. This is an invaluable resource you can rely on to get information about your land. Beyond soil type, it can help you understand drainage, productive capacity, and other features that may affect your management decisions. Please watch the video below on how to use the Web Soil Survey. The user notes PDF is a handy reference guide.

After you've learned about it, go visit the Web Soil Survey and look up your woodlot, or if you don't yet have access to a piece of forest, look up a property near you that you'd like to learn about. Use the comments below to let us know what interesting new things you learned about this property!
