Description: The effects of fertilization on the growth and development of a Japanese larch plantation in central West Virginia were evaluated after 9 years. Mean height and diameter growth of the larch trees were greater on the unfertilized plots. Foliar and soil chemical analyses were used to examine this apparent anomaly. Japanese larch demonstrated an ability to grow well on a very nutrient-deficient site and was not damaged by deer browsing
Keywords: Japanese larch, fertilization, height growth, diameter growth, central West Virginia, foliar and soil chemistry
