Fertilizing Pine Plantations


Fertilization of pine plantations in the South has increased dramatically with over 1,000,000 acres fertilized in 1997 alone. Fertilization is used to correct inherent site nutrient deficiencies such a limited phosphorus on wet flatwoods sites and on some upland coastal plain sites, to boost growth of established plantations, and to replace nutrients removed in pine straw harvests.
