The relationship between growth and basic density was studied in a fertilization trial using four clones in poor soils in the coastal savannas of Congo. Fertilization lead to a joint increase of both volume and density. This can be explained by the analysis of radial variation of basic density. Whatever the reason, fertilization can only improve the productivity of pulp producing plantations.
