You Yangs Land Capability

This report : "Land Capability Survey of the You Yangs Forest Reserve" was prepared by G.L Guy of the former Soil Conservation Authority in 1978. This study was carried out to provide an evaluation of the capability of the land for recreation uses which could be used by the then Management Committee of the You Yangs Forest Park to develop management prescriptions for the area. The report provides a description of the land and incorporates soil profile descriptions and analyses.
