Reclaiming Illinois strip mined coal lands with trees

Reclaiming Illinois strip mined coal lands with trees

Jour Forest 39(8): 714-719

Irregular action of the stripping shovel results in mixing the natural strata, leaving new soil conditions. Besides the soil, insufficient soil moisture and rabbits are common causes of difficulty. Black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia), and short-leaf pine (Pinus echinata) have given the best results and have been planted in the greatest abundance. Other spp. do well on selected sites.
