Nutrient deficiency in trees

Nutrient deficiency in treesAbstract:
Our knowledge of the nutrition of ornamental trees is sparse. Most research has been conducted on juvenile plants
or seedlings that are grown for a few weeks or months in greenhouses, growth chambers or even in nurseries where
the controlled conditions are quite different than the environmental conditions encountered in nature and those found
in larger, developing trees. Furthermore, most of the literature on nutrient deficiencies is from crop science or horticultural
plants, not trees. The information available for trees is at best fragmentary. This fact sheet provides information on
some of the nutritional deficiencies found in urban trees in Tennessee and the responses of trees to those deficiencies.
