Identification of Lower Coastal Plain Sites of Low Soil Fertility

Analysis of forest survey plot data for 16 coastal counties in North Carolina indicated substantial areas of very low productivity for pine growth were associated with two site types, savannas and pocosins, that are easily identified by aerial photo interpretation. Results indicate that the ready identifiability of such areas provides a rapid method for screening areas for soil test sampling and for making large-scale economic appraisals of sites where fertilizer investments might be worthwhile.
