In present study effect of nutrient application have been observed on some early and late successional species of Central Himalaya. For this, seedlings of three early and three late successional species were raised in polythene bags containing 3:1 mixture of sand and soil. After establishment, seedlings were kept under six nutrient levels. In general, maximum production levels were greater for early successional species than they were in late successional species. Root:shoot ratio were greater for late successional species while leaf weight ratios were greater for early successional species. With increasing nutrient availability, root:shoot ratio decreased and leaf weight ratio increased.
