Large differences in height and diameter growth occur in two portions of a Liriodendron tulipifera L. plantation in southwestern Michigan. Foliar analysis revealed highly significant differences in soil nutrient regimes between the two growth areas, especially in nitrogen and phosphorus, with availability of both elements severely limiting in the poor growth area. The greater quantities of nutrients in the good growth area come from additional litter deposited there from the adjoining hardwood stand, and not deposited in the poor growth area.
