Abstract: 

Introduction: Soil is the main source for human basic needs and land utilization. It makes a linkage between climatic and biogeochemical systems and meets a variety of human requirements (Young et al., 2004). An unsuitable land- use change may lead to a decrease in areas of pastures and forests, soil and water pollution, soil quality reduction and lossing land productivity (Islamet al., 1999).
Forest destruction and its conversion into agricultural lands and reforestation by broad-leaved and coniferous species are the common forms of forest land-uses in the mountainous Hyrcanian forests in north of Iran. Soil quality as the combination of physical, chemical and biological properties of soil may be altered by changing in soil conditions affected by land use type (Brejda et al., 2000). Impact of different land – uses on soil quality was evaluated by measuring several soil properties. The present study aimed to investigate the effect of land use change on soil physical, chemical and biological properties and soil quality index in managed Beech stand, destructed forest stand, Pine plantation, Ash plantation, and agriculture land in Alandan forests.
