Observations in the southern pinelands have shown that serious damage to plantations by cattle browsing and trampling is limited to trees less than 6 to 8 feet tall . except where cattle are concentrated (Cassady. Hopkins. and Whitaker. 1955). The poss ibility that application of fertilizer with clean cultivation would increase growth rate. producing a 6- to 8-foot tree in 3 or 4 years , plus the need to know more about grow th response of slash pine (Pinus elliottii Engelm. val'. elliottii), prompted this study to test the effect of several kinds . rates, and combinations of inorganic fertilizers .
