Author: Alban, David H.;

Publication Series: Research Note (RN)
Description: Fertilization resulted in increased height and top weight of red pine seedlings by the end of the second growing season, but also resulted in considerable seedling mortality. A high level of watering also increased seedling growth but to a much less extent than fertilization. Fertilization of 1-year-old seedlings resulted in dramatic changes in their chemical composition after one growing season.
Keywords: fertilization, red pine, seedlings
