Title: Comparison of fall and spring planting on strip-mine spoils in the bituminous region of Pennsylvania

Author: Davis, Grant.;

Date: 1973

Source: In: Ecology and Reclamation of Devastated Land, Vol. 1. R.J. Hutnik and G. Davis, eds. New York: Gordon and Breach: 525-538.

Publication Series: Scientific Journal (JRNL)

Description: To evaluate fall versus spring planting of 10 coniferous tree species and 5 hardwood shrub species, experimental plantings were established over a 2-year period on 7 graded strip-mine spoils. In general, initial tree survival was better with spring planting than with fall planting, especially on the more acid sites. Shrubs survived well with both spring and fall planting on the better sites, but spring planting of shrubs was more successful on the more acid sites. Season of planting had no significant effect on fifth-year height of either trees or shrubs.
