Author: Zalesny, Ronald S., Jr. Jr.; Bauer, Edmund O.;

Date: 2007

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: Soil contaminant levels and early tree growth data are helpful for assessing phytoremediation systems. Populus (DN17, DN182, DN34, NM2, and NM6) and Salix (94003, 94012, S287, S566, and SX61) genotypes were irrigated with landfill leachate or municipal water and tested for differences in 1) element concentrations (P, K, Ca, Mg, S, Zn, B, Mn, Fe, Cu, Al, and Na) of a topsoil layer and a layer of sand in tanks with a cover crop of trees or no trees and 2) height, diameter, volume, and dry mass of leaves, stems, and roots. Trees were irrigated with leachate or water during the final 12 wk of the 18-wk study.

Keywords: phytoremediation, poplar, willow, edaphic properties, tree volume, tree biomass
