Describes a series of pot experiments on Scots Pine seedlings grown in soil from the A1 horizon of typical alvar forest soils. The poor growth was caused by the high content of bicarbonates, though this was to some extent compensated by the high humus content. Because of the high content of CaCO3 and the neutral or weakly alkaline reaction, P is not readily available and this is the main, though not the sole, factor limiting growth on these soils.
