Nutrient Conservation in Forestry: A Perspective
Abstract:Losses of plant nutrients and costs of their replacement after various methods of harvest and site preparation are estimated and discussed. Current fertilization practice in southern pine silviculture is reviewed, and factors limiting its effectiveness and means of maximizing benefits are emphasized. The intent is to encourage southern forest managers to use presently available information to evaluate alternative techniques of harvest, site preparation, and fertilization, and to devise more ecologically acceptable and cost-effective practices.
