This research was conducted to assess reforestation success and ultimate productivity for areas reclaimed under the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act of 1977 (Public Law 95-87). The objectives were to (1) compare establishment success and productivity of ground cover and commercial hardwood trees planted concurrently and maintained under the same level of management on reclaimed mineland and unmined reference sites; (2) evaluate survival and growth of bareroot, containerized, and mycorrhizal inoculated hardwood seedlings; and (3) evaluate chemical plant control as a technique for concurrent establishment of hardwood tree species and low ground cover vegetation.
