  • We studied the distribution and retranslocation of N in 11-year-old Pinus contorta Dougl. trees following a winter application of N at 100 kg ha(-1) as (15)N-urea, (15)NH(4)NO(3) or NH(4) (15)NO(3). In all treatments, there was little uptake of (15)N after the first growing season although labeled N was still present in the soil. In subsequent years, (15)N in the trees was partly retranslocated, and, at the same time, it was diluted by uptake of unlabeled N from the soil. Between Years 1 and 8… CONTINUE READING
