Smith, T. E. (2005) Tree form and the roles of boron and calcium in hardwoods. In: Corymbia research meeting: Underpinning development of a profitable hardwood plantation industry in northern Australia by research into Corymbia species and hybrids. Department of Primary Industries and Fisheries, 38 pages.



A balanced nutrition is essential for the healthy growth and form of tree species. In the absence of the micronutrient boron (B) and/or the macronutrient calcium (Ca) loss of apical dominance occurs rapidly resulting in the onset of poor tree form. Knowledge of specific roles of these elements helps to explain their importance and why tree form deteriorates when
their supply becomes limited.
