This paper summarizes the fourth-year growth-response evaluation of nine fertilizer experiments established near Dryden, Ontario by the Canadian Forestry Service. The results clearly indicate that the application of N or NPK mixtures can stimulate the growth of jack pine trees to produce in 4 years up to 2½ cords/acre more merchantable wood than unfertilized stands.
