Methods and costs for establishing shrubs on mined lands in southwestern Wyoming

Methods and costs for establishing shrubs on mined lands in southwestern Wyoming

General Technical Report, Intermountain Forest and Range Experiment Station, USDA Forest Service (172): 286-292

Several methods were investigated to determine the most cost-effective means for establishing various shrub species on reclaimed surface-mined land at the Black Butte Coal Mine in southwestern Wyoming. Direct seeding was far more cost-effective ($0.18/surviving shrub) than any transplanting method. Transplanting bareroot stock was the most economical transplanting method at $0.41/surviving shrub.
