This study examines the plant species of herbaceous cover on a skid road subjected to soil compaction due to timber skidding in a pure fir (Abies bornmulleriana Mattf.) plantation forest. Previous studies have shown that ground based skidding damages soils, and degrades the ecosystem because it limits the recovery and growth of plant cover. However, some plant species can recover and survive after extreme degradation due to skidding. The composition of these species and their cover-abundance scales are examined. Sixteen species are determined belonging to 11 plant families.
