Small yellow birch and sugar maple pole-size trees 4 to 7 in dbh growing on four forest sites in Vermont did not respond significantly to fertilizers during a study period of up to 14 years. Trees were released by thinning, and various combinations of N, P, K, and lime were applied at up to three rates. Improved growth was best related to crown size. Selecting and releasing large-crowned crop trees of good form on the best sites may be the best investment of time and money. North. J. Appl. For. 2:108-110, Dec. 1985.
