The application of chemical fertilizers to forest soils for site amelioration is one of the newest and most promising methods for increasing production. Concern has risen over possible toxic and eutrophic effects of fertilization on water quality. Data was assembled on the scope and trends of the practice throughout the world in order to determine the extent of actual or potential detrimental effects of forest fertilization, and to evaluate priority for grants. Results of completed forest fertilization-water quality studies are summarized and evaluated, and the status of current water quality studies in described. Recommendations are given for reviews and new research efforts. (Author)
