The aim of this study was to investigate some soil chemical properties in dieback of oak stands in northwestern Ilam. In this investigation, in order to detect this variation trend, the area of affected decline oak trees was divided to four groups of control (without Oak dieback), slight, middle and severe Oak dieback based on tree and branch number per soil surface unit. In each study group, soil sampling was done with four replications. After soil sampling operation and preparation, experimental properties such as calcium carbonate, total nitrogen, available phosphour (P), potassium (K), zinc (Zn) and cation exchangeable capacity (CEC) were determined by three replications. Data were analyzed by Statistical Analysis System (SAS) program v 9.2 and comparisons among means were done by Duncans, multiple range test (DMRT) at p<0.05. Analysis of variation of data indicated that a TNV content with the high effect on availability of nutrient elements had an increasing trend from without to  severe Oak decline locations. In addition, with any change in location from without oak decline to sever decline, nitrogen, available phosphorus and zinc concentration witnessed a decreasing trend. Amount of CEC in depth of 0 to 25 cm of southern aspect reduced from 13.1 cmol+ kg- in without Oak decline to  9.21 cmol+ kg-1 in severe Oake decline site. Concentration of this nutrient decreased from 18.1 mg kg-1 in depth of 0-25 cm in whitout oak decline to 13.0 mg kg-1 in severe oak decline lication. A decreasing trend of available potassium and zinc concentrations were also observed. Therefore, higher Oak decline in locations with lower P, K and Zn  make some recommendations for their development and reclamation for forest management.
