Effect of Forest Drainage and Fertilization on Wood Production Capacity
The most important aim of forest drainage is to increase the area of productive forest land and the growth of naturally tree-covered peatlands. Unproductive peatlands are mainly open mires, but there are also large areas of peatlands growing low-productive forest in Finland, Sweden, Russia and Canada, for instance. If climatic conditions are not limiting, the productivity of these peatlands can be increased through drainage.
