An open, nutrient poor peatland near Quebec City was drained in 1969. Part of the area was used for an experiment with N, P, K fertilizers. A split-split plot design was used. Black spruce, jack pine and lodgepole pine seedlings were spot fertilized. Several plots randomly selected in a black spruce residual stand were fertilized with N, P, K and Cu. In this report the area, statistical design and methods are described.
