    The recently-released Timber Resources Review forecasts increasing demands for wood and wood products through the end of this century. If these demands are to be met, particularly in view of a shrinking forest-land base, then widespread use of intensive culture must ultimately be adopted. Two cultural techniques being looked at more and more closely as ways of increasing productivity are the use of genetically-improved planting stock having the ability to produce more wood than is obtainable from wildland populations, and the application of fertilizers to nutrient-deficient forest sites. At Warren, Pennsylvania, Northeastern Forest Experiment Station researchers are studying ways to increase yields of black cherry and other important associated species by application of fertilizers. Through our present research program we expect to develop prescriptions. for use of fertilizers, including criteria for diagnostic evaluation of nutrient deficiencies and fertilizer needs in managed and unmanaged black cherry stands.
