Fertilizers are applied to over a million acres of forestland annually.
Some trees, particularly slash and loblolly pines, can respond
dramatically to proper fertilization. Response is best when
other intensive management practices are being applied and on
nutrient deficient sites. Knowledge of your soil type and soil
conditions, combined with a soil test to determine the site’s
soil fertility status, will help identify sites and stands that
will respond to specific fertilizers.
