    This paper reviews experiences spreading organic solid wastes on forest land over the past six years. Presented are some of the first-ever reported results on tree growth responses from fertilizing pine trees with poultry litter, spreader distribution pattern results for spreading in a pine plantation stand, and a discussion of equipment-related experiences spreading poultry litter, fly ash, and wood ash. A list of conclusions/recommendations relating to forest fertilization with poultry litter, site selection and conditions, and equipment is also presented.
