Radiata pine soil degrader or improver


, : Radiata pine soil degrader or improver. New Zealand Journal of Forestry 21(2): 248-252

Prominent European and American foresters and soil scientists have concluded that, contrary to popular belief, successive crops of conifers do not in themselves cause serious and irreversible soil deterioration. Where deterioration has occurred it is due to man's mismanagement in allowing such practices as litter removal to occur and his failure to apply fertilizers to infertile sites. In New Zealand instances are reported where well-managed radiata pine (Pinus radiata) forests have improved soil fertility. Where, on infertile sites, a decline in growth of the 2nd crop is recorded, growth rates are increased by the application of fertilizers.
