Harrelson, T. et al. 2004. HOw do you manage fresh versus aged pine bark?

Tested growth in 100% aged or fresh bark and added nutrients to accommodate nitrogen immobilization in fresh bark. Physical properties of fresh bark, with reduced container capacity and reduced available water compared to aged bark, may have been the cause of reduced growth. Growers might manage water differently if using fresh bark solely or as an amendment. T Harrelson, SL Warren, and TE Bilderback. SNA RESEARCH CONFERENCE 49:63-66 (2004)
