The main forest soils class found from Dolj Forest Directorate was Protisol class (60%). The main soil type found was fluvisols and arenosls, which cover the high forest area. At opposite part, the small forest area was cover with solonchaks and anthrosols (entiantrosols). Furthemore the higher content of humus was founded in luvisols follow by vertisols and fluvisols. The total cationic exchange capacity is the most significant for vertisols and the lowest for arenosols.
