From the MTRI announcement:
The Department of Lands and Forestry started a provincial forest soil sampling program in 2015 to acquire up-to-date chemistry data for nutrient budget modelling and monitoring purposes. In 2017, the Department also worked with Kejimkujik National Park to re-sample soils at two forest sites first sampled more than 20 years ago. This presentation will provide an overview of results from these projects with a focus on western Nova Scotia conditions
This presentation will provide a rare opportunity to learn about L&F’s progress towards incorporating nutrient budgeting into its Crown land harvest decisions, once promised for mid-2010.
A Nutrient Budgeting Project Team is notably absent from the list of Project Teams highlighted by L&F in their recent updates on Ecological Forestry Implementation, as is any discussion or highlighting of research by Kevin Keys & Co on this topic on the L&F website or in the most recent State of the Forest Report.
A recent related post:
Why is the low base saturation/soil acidification/nutrient depletion/extreme surface water acidity in SW Nova Scotia still ignored in Crown land harvest decisions?
