Nutrient deficiency limits how fast and large trees grow and is thought to be common across B.C.’s forests. To boost forest productivity, the province has been fertilizing forests for decades. By reducing nutrient deficiency, periodic applications of nitrogen and other essential nutrients benefits forest growth and increases the amount of carbon they store. Prior to the establishment of FCI, approximately 17,000 hectares of forests were fertilized annually. Additional fertilization through FCI is projected to more than double the annual area treated in B.C. by 2020.
