The nutrient impacts of forestry

I have been working on New Zealand’s Land Use and Carbon Analysis System (LUCAS) for the Ministry for the Environment to quantify carbon stocks and changes for planted and natural forests. I originally started at Scion when it was called the Forest Research Institute working on tree nutrition. It is relevant for me to discuss this topic now because after we put the carbon models together I was able to come back to tree nutrition. I was amazed to find the papers we published years ago were still in journals and not incorporated into models that we could use for tree nutrition. I suggested to the managers that it was time for me to put away administrative things and managing projects and focus on reading all those publications, not just from Scion, but other agencies too and put them into models.
