AbstractEvaluates the effects of interspecific competition between native understory shrubs and Pinus palustris on the fate of nitrogen fertilizer. Native woody shrubs have market potential and can potentially be intercropped in young, P. palustris plantations. While interspecific competition was present, nitrogen did not seem to be the limiting factor. Management of this system may need to address competition for water.
