The purpose of fertilizers in forestry aims to accomplish a dual purpose; first, to maintain an adequate level of fertility in permanently cropped soils of forest nurseries; second, to correct nutrient deficiencies in soils supporting plantations or natural stands. During the past decade, foresters have made remarkable progress in the use of fertilizers in forest nurseries; in this phase of fertilizer practice silviculture has attained as high a level of efficiency as in agronomy. At the same time, the use of fertilizers outside of nursery beds is badly in need of additional and well-planned research.
