Effects of liming on chemical properties of soil, needle nutrients and growth of Scots pine transplants

, : Effects of liming on chemical properties of soil, needle nutrients and growth of Scots pine transplants. Forest Ecology and Management 262(2): 0-285

The effects of limestone (2. and 4.Mgha?1) on chemical properties of soil, nutrient concentrations of needles and growth of Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) transplants were investigated on three reforestation areas on infertile acidic sites in southern Finland. The limestone was applied either on the soil surface (unploughed plots) or was mixed into the topsoil (ploughed plots). All the treatments were replicated four times. Surface broadcast of lime elevated the pH in the organic layer and in the 1cm layer of mineral soil. The increase in the pH of the organic layer after 21 years was, on average, .7 and. Highlights: Effects of liming on soil and Scots pines were followed for 21 years. The experiments were established on three reforestation areas. Liming (2 and 4Mgha?1) increased soil exchangeable Ca and Mg linearly. Surface liming increased stand growth, but limestone mixed in the topsoil had no effect. Ca/Mn ratio in needles was the best indicator for measuring the response to liming.
