Description: Liriodendron seedlings were planted each spring and fall for 5 years on unmined lands, ungraded spoils, graded to approximate original contour (AOC), and graded to contour with "topsoil" replaced. Survival was greatest on unmined lands and height greatest on ungraded ridge and valley spoil. No Liriodendron seedlings survived on AOC graded mine land. A few small trees survived on graded "topsoil" sites where surface materials had been segregated and replaced. Reclaimed sites with topsoil replaced were highly compacted and had a dense tall fescue grass ground cover. On unmined lands and ungraded spoils, Liriodendron seedlings outgrew black walnut and northern red oak seedlings.
