The topsoil beneath mull-forming hardwoods was generally higher in pH and base saturation with the largest differences being displayed between Tilia and Fagus/Quercus. C/N ratios were significantly lower in the topsoil under Acer. Significant differences in physical soil properties among humus form were also evident. The A-horizon under mull-forming species was higher in total porosity, aeration porosity and saturated hydraulic conductivity. The bulk density was only significantly lower under Fraxinus. The E-horizon of the mull stands was lower in bulk density and higher in aeration porosity but this was linked by a reduction in water-filled porosity. The study indicated that mull-forming tree species differed in ability to improve or maintain productivity of the studied soil type.",
