Forest fertilisation in Britain

Research Report (incl. Bulletins and Technical Papers)
C M A Taylor
1993
In Britain the use of fertilisers has greatly increased the productivity of forests growing on nutrient-poor soils. From the early pioneering work of Stirling-Maxwell to the present day, the Forestry Commission has continually tested rates and types of fertiliser and methods of application. A pattern has gradually emerged from these empirical experiments indicating the fertiliser requirements of the main tree species planted today in Britain. This Bulletin attempts to condense this research into practical guidance for the forest manager.
