Mark record


Specific gravity and Kraft pulp yield have been studied following nitrogen and potassium fertilization of balsam fir. Analyses carried out at three stem heights on 10 paired trees from a natural 60-year-old balsam fir stand have demonstrated that fertilization reduced wood specific gravity but increased Kraft pulp yield. The technological impact of such results on extra volume obtained by fertilization is discussed.
