Soil polarization is a new concept which describes the deviation of soil properties of planted pure forest from its original equilibrium status toward an extreme condition due to long-term growth or continuous planting of single tree species.
This is thought to be the fundamental obstacle to continuous growing of planted pure forest. Based on this principle, models were established to evaluate the soil properties of planted pure forests in the hilly area of the Loess Plateau and the results showed that there were tendency of polarization in the local forests soil (Liu et al., 2009).
