Fertilizer Trials for Improved Establishment of Shortleaf Pine, White Ash, and Yellowpoplar Plantings on Adverse Sites
In efforts to reforest abandoned farm land and spoil banks left by strip mining in the Central States, difficulty is frequently experienced in obtaining prompt, successful establishment of planted trees, particularly desirable hardwoods. Since low fertility is characteristic of such sites and spot application of fertilizer in forest plantings is economically feasible, the Forest Service has experimented in applying fertilizer at time of planting. In reporting on some of the tests, the author brings out the differential response of three different species to the nutrients supplied, and mentions factors in site adversity other than deficiency of soil nutrients.
