Abstract

This study investigated the effects of black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia L.) plantations on surface soil properties in eroded sand loam (SL) soils. Two land use types were selected in the semi-humid region of Artvin, Turkey: a black locust plantation area (BLP) and an adjacent non-managed site (NMS) (control site). The study used a randomized complete block design with four replications in both experimental sites. Four disturbed and four undisturbed soil samples were randomly collected in each site. The highest carbon sequestration was measured at a soil depth of 0-10 cm in the BLP site. The black locust plantation (BLP) had a positive impact on surface soil properties and carbon sequestration in eroded lower hillslopes in the semi-humid region of Coruh Drainage Basin (CDB) in Turkey. The planting of black locust might be useful in soil reclamation projects in this type of eroded sites in semi-humid regions
