In this study, we investigated the timber harvesting effects on some soil properties (sand, silt, clay, pH, electrical conductivity, fine soil < 2 mm, coarse soil > 2 mm, root mass, organic carbon, moisture equivalent, total porosity, bulk density, moisture and compaction) at soil depths (0-5 and 5-10cm), herbaceous cover and forest floor (unit mass, organic matter and moisture) on skid road of an oak (Quercus petrea L.) stand in Istanbul Belgrad Forest of Turkey.
