The purpose of this investigation is to study the effect of the forest on soil temperature at definite depths, expressed in terms of daily maximum and daily minimum. By forest is meant not only the trees but the surface vegetation and litter as well. Effort was made to preserve the vegetation and litter from being disturbed over the period covered by the investigation.
