    Description

    Coastal plain soils are naturally low in fertility and many pine stands will give an economic response to fertilization, especially phosphorus. Maintaining the nutrients that are on the site by limiting displacement of logging slash during and after the harvest can be important in maintaining the productivity of the site and reducing the amount of fertilizer required. Because of the low reserves in the soil, even well managed harvests may remove sufficient nutrients to lower productivity of the site. Soil testing should be included in the planning of a harvest. After the harvest, application of fertilizer as indicated by the soil test will prevent losses in productivity.
