The sampling site Naturdenkmal Stempelsbuche is located in a spruce forest within the catchment area of the upper Ilse river at an altitude of 640 m.
The sampling site is characterised by a high variability in soil types which can be put down to the high ratio of rocks (greater than 40 % of the area). Cambisols, stagnosols, podsols, and rocky humus soils are present next to many transitional soil types. Rocky humus soils are found on top of stones and rocks, whereas the more developed soil types only occur in the chasms between rocks.
