Title: Effects of different sources of fertilizer nitrogen on growth and nutrition of western hemlock seedlings.

Author: Radwan, M.A.; DeBell, Dean S.;

Date: 1980

Source: Res. Pap. PNW-RP-267. Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Forest and Range Experiment Station. 15 p

Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Twelve different nitrogen (N) fertilizer treatments were tested on potted western hemlock (Tsuga heterophylla (Raf.) Sarg.) seedlings. Fertilizers affected soil N and pH, and growth and foliar chemical composition of seedlings. Urea plus N-Serve and sulfur-coated urea appear more promising for promoting growth than other fertilizers tested. Results, however, do not explain reported variability in response of hemlock stands to N fertilization.

Keywords: Nitrogen fertilizer response, seedling growth, western hemlock, Tsuga heterophylla
