Research article Impact of nutrient replacement on energy production from radiata pine
R.K. Grant and M.R. Walter
In radiata pine plantations the energy cost of fertilisers necessary to replace nutrients removed by whole-tree harvesting, or by collecting forest residues, is likely to be considerably less than 5% of the energy value of the biomass harvested. This is well within the error in the present estimates of biomass production either from whole crops or from forest residue collection (no keywords)
