AFFORESTATION / Ground Preparation 11 Disking is effective in soils with compacted surface and it promotes infiltration. Nevertheless, disking may reduce medium pore soil volume in dry areas and therefore it may affect water availability for plants. Also, disking may affect soil organic matter. Ripping Trees form shallow root systems where there is any impediment to root penetration. Shallow root systems make trees susceptible to windthrow, and to summer drought stress. Thus, ripping is required on compacted and heavy clay soils.
