Stem Form of Fertilized Loblolly Pine
Abstract:Significant increase in form class after application of a nitrogenous fertilizer was observed in a 23-year-old unthinned stand of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) in the North Carolina Piedmont on an abandoned field. An effect on stocking was also attributable to nitrogen level in this plantation. Significant but small changes in form class due to phosphate application were detected in the same and another (18-year-old) area. An hypothesis is proposed for the mechanism whereby changes in form class are effected by fertilizer application.
