I've been wondering, and since I've been studying Biology for quite sometime, I pretty much know the basics of all the different climates/biomes/ecosystems/etc . I live in a deciduous forest that experiences the 4 seasons and the northeast has been known for having very fertile soils due to all the decaying plant matter and leaves from during the fall. The soil here is very rich in humus, so wouldn't that mean it wouldnt be bad to grow plants in the native soil? There's plant growth everywhere in the forests around here, the ground is literally green (not grass) with so many random plants. So that pretty much means we have good native soil, right?
