Forest soils are regarded as the main element of the forest sites, being a strong correlation between the types of the forests and their productivity with the types of the soils. In the last four decades, three soil classification systems were developed in Romania, namely SRCS-1980 (valid for the timeframe 1980-2002), SRTS-2003 (used in the period 2003-2012) and SRTS-2012, in use starting from 2013. The aim of this paper was to realize a description of forest soils from Argeş County. The data for the timeframe 1985-2015 from the forest management plans of the state-owned forest districts within Argeş Forestry Directorate were taken into account. The most spread forest soils across Argeş County were the eutric cambisol and the dystric cambisol, followed by the luvisol, preluvisol and entic podzol. The soils vary from moderately humiferous (preluvisols) to intensely humiferous (eutric cambisols, dystric cambisols and luvisols) and very intensely humiferous (entic podzols).
