Fertilisation boosts growth and carbon sequestration

Good forest management includes many stages, but fertilisation is the fastest way for forest owners to increase forest growth and carbon sequestration. Growth-enhancing fertilisation improves tree growth and enhances carbon sequestration, which helps mitigate climate change. Appropriate fertilisation benefits both the environment and the forest owner’s finances.

The sale of growth fertilizers was suspended In Finland for a the time  as nitrogen fertilizers were not available for forest growth fertilization.

Growth fertilizers are again available ja prices have decreased significantly. Fertilisation is a profitable investment for your own forest. You can still orders fertilisation for season 2023. Ask your local forestry expert for more details.

Fertilisation with ash and boron are sold and carried out as normal.

Growth-enhancing fertilisation is usually the choice for the fertilisation for mineral soils. This means applying nitrogen fertiliser, because the supply of nitrogen is usually the factor restricting tree growth on mineral soils. Meanwhile, peatlands usually contain plenty of nitrogen, but other nutrients may be in short supply or poorly balanced, which is why corrective fertilisation is used in such environments.

Nutrient deficiency can often be determined visually, based on the look of the trees. Our forest specialists can help you assess nutrient deficiencies.
