Fertilization Treatments Increase Black Locust Growth on Extremely Acid Surface-Mine Spoils

Black locust is one o f the more commonly planted species on surface mine spoils with a pH o f 4.5 or less. Survival on these sites may be acceptable, but height growth is often quite slow, greatly reducing the effectiveness o f the tree cover for site protection. Since black locust is one o f the few tree or shrub species that will survive on these difficult sites, it seems appropriate to develop treatments that will result in faster and more complete site protection.
