The stem portion of the tree represents the nutrient capital removed in conventional harvesting systems. It also represents the nutrient capital immobilized in a stand. Accurate estimates of stem nutrient content are required to evaluate the forest nutrient cycle and harvesting impacts. This investigation suggests that a single stem disc [Pinus resinosa], when used to estimate the nutrient content of a stem, does not estimate this content within .+-. 10% of the actual stem content. More than 5 discs, taken over the length of the stem, are needed to meet a 10% allowable error criterion.
