There are concerns that the anthropogenic acidification of Swedish forest soils may have severe effects on forest yield, and it has been suggested that liming could be used to counter this problem. The aim of this study was to investigate the survival, growth and element concentrations of C+1 needles of Picea abies (L.) Karst. seedlings planted on plots that had been acidified (in 12 annual treatments totalling 600 or 1200 kg S ha−1 in the form of elemental sulphur), limed (12×500=6000 kg lime… CONTINUE READING
