The soils in Buila-VĂ¢nturariÅ£a Massif, being partly formed on a limestone bedrock, are not too various, differences being based on the vegetal associations that formed on top of it.

Generally, among the Buila-Vanturarita NP soils, the dominant are rendzine, due to the calcareous configuration of the massif. In the fagus level there are podzolic humic-aluvional soils, brown acid and alpine and forestry fields, with an acid reaction and different degrees of podzolization. In the coniferous level there are podzolic soils, brown acid and podzolic humic-aluvial. In the stone cracks there is turbidite soil, on which there are special adaptations species – hasmofit. Along the Bistrita valley, there are alluvial soils.
