Abstract:

Previous research has documented that nitrogen fertilization can lead to a significant tree growth increase in large parts of Scandinavia. Nutrient management of Nordic forests is currently under debate, mainly because environmental values are believed to be unnecessarily endangered by these actions. Nutrient management including fertilization, liming, recycling of wood ash or application of alternative nutrient sources can counteract nutrient deficiencies and imbalances, and be used for compensating the nutrients removed through harvesting. For successful implementation of nutritional management measures, several questions should still be studied. These questions mainly concern diagnosis of the need for applications, nutritional sustainability and treatment effects on the forest ecosystem and the surrounding environment.
