Short summary
Soil properties, as well as biochemical, microbiological, and physicochemical properties of an burned Aleppo pine stand had the ability to recover 17 years after fire, showing similar values than a not-burned mature Aleppo pine stand. These properties had also recovered after 12 years of carrying out silvicultural management as thinning.
