    Slash pine has outgrown both loblolly and pond pine on a poorly drained, wet savannah. All three pines responded to phosphate, phosphate with lime, and nitrogen fertilizations. None of the three responded to lime alone. The study indicated that calcium for loblolly pine, magnesium for slash pine, and nitrogen and calcium for pond pine may have been as or more limiting to growth than phosphorus. Correcting nutrient deficiencies 11 to 14 years after planting can raise the productivity of a site from very low to average.
