Effects of Compost and Stand Density Upon Longleaf and Slash Pine Nursery Stock
Abstract:Forest nurserymen frequently are faced with the problem of maintaining or increasing the productive capacity of nurseries over a period of many years. This article presents the results of a study of the use of compost (artificial manure) with longleaf and slash pine under varying conditions of stand density as a possible solution to the problem. Encouraging results were obtained, which serve to justify wider use of compost as a means of producing more and better planting stock.
