Fertilization: Effects on Stream Water

# 40 Fertilization Tests with Allegheny Hardwoods
  • Objective:
    To establish the growth response obtainable from fertilization and the time duration that treatments affect production.
  • Objective:
    1) To provide a vivid demonstration of the effects of fertilization on growth and development of young regeneration obtained after harvest cutting.
    2) To assess the impact of fertilization on production of wildlife browse and its crude protein content.
    3) To assess the impact on deer day usage.
    4) To determine the degree of nutrient movement into stream water and its effect on stream fauna.
  • Objective:
    To determine: 1) if soil aluminum, deer, and/or shade/allelopathy are affecting development of forest regeneration
    2) the effect of lime on growth rates of seedlings and residual trees
    3) the effect of lime on soil aluminum and the availability of soil nitrogen and phosphorous.
