Nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium fertilizer treatments in a Pinus strobus L. plantation were related to tree growth and incidence of white pine weevil damage. In this plantation, growing on deep coarse sandy potash-deficient soil, potassium significantly increased tree growth and weevil damage while nitrogen caused decreases. A nitrogen-potassium interaction is indicated. Fertilizing of white pine involves consideration of possible benefits in wood production vs. possible damage by weevils.
