Effect of Fertilization on Nutrient Concentrations of White Spruce Foliage and Bark
Three-year macronutrient analysis of inner bark and current needles of 35-year-old white spruce fertilized with factorial combinations of N, P, and K indicated that foliar nutrients were more sensitive to fertilization than bark nutrients, although the latter may reflect a more persistent N response. Fertilization did not change breast-height diameter growth significantly. Bark sampling at the base of tall trees may be useful for predicting first season N composition of current foliage in the crown. Forest Sci. 25:115-119.
