"Whole Tree" Harvesting: Nutrient Budget Evaluation
Abstract:Budgets for N, P, K, and Ca are evaluated for a forest site harvested by chipping and removing entire trees. Soil reserves and natural inputs and recycling of elements can supply N, P, and K for an apparently unlimited number of tree crops. Depletion of Ca reserves may begin to limit tree growth after harvest of nine similar 30-year crops.
