    Full text of "Establishment of seeded black locust on spoil banks" distribution of seedlings is often a limiting factor for determining the degree of success in evaluating the direct seeding on a spoil bank. A spoil bank may have a relatively large number of trees per acre, but if those seedlings are grouped on a small portion of the area. The Alberta Research Council, Inc. (ARC) has conducted a surface coal mine reclamation research program in association with the operations of Smoky River Coal Ltd. near Grande Cache, Alberta since The main objective of this long-term study was to develop and refine cost-effective methods of establishing a self-sustaining vegetation cover that is in harmony with adjacent undisturbed areas.

American chestnut (Castanea dentata), once a primary constituent of the eastern hardwood forest ecosystem, was nearly extirpated from the forest canopy by the accidental introduction of chestnut blight (Cryphonectria parasitica).

An intensive breeding program has sought to breed blight resistance from Chinese chestnut into American chestnuts, while maintaining as much of the desirable American Cited by: 4.

Studies examining the use of direct seeding on surface mine sites are somewhat limited, but there have been some examining the reestablishment of American Chestnut (Castanea dentata (Marsh.) Borkh.) in eastern forests from seed.

Macyk, Vernon G. Belts. In –, a series of reforestation plots were created on a reclaimed surface mine in eastern Kentucky, USA, to evaluate the impacts of post-mining spoil preparation on plantation.

Revegetation has overcome pollution and aesthetic problems, illustrating that direct seeding can be successful on a calcareous substrate where heavy metals are relatively unavailable and acidity is not a problem.

Instructive illustrations show mine sites before and after rehabilitation. The purpose of this book is to provide students, scientists, and professional personnel in the mining industry sensible, science-based information needed to rehabilitate sustainably areas 5/5(1).

Regardless of these conditions, post-mine sites are usually characterised by a severe lack of soil organic matter, poor air-to-water ratios, compaction, extreme acidity or alkalinity, and often excessive salinity (Brevik and Lazari,Pietrzykowski,Pietrzykowski,Roberts et al., ).The soils are characterised by a deficit of nutrients, and their disturbance relationships.

Abstract A commercial, no-till row planter was extensively modified for use in direct seeding of hardwood tree species in surface mine reclamation. A pneumatic seed metering system was designed, fabricated, and mounted on the planter by: 1.To chill a small number of seeds, soak them in water for 48 hours and allow to drain.

Next place your seeds on a paper towel, moisten it with water and fold. Put the moist paper towel in a labelled and sealed plastic bag and refrigerate for weeks before sowing. This generally takes an .A commercial, no-till row drill was extensively modified for use in direct sowing of hardwood tree species in surface mine reclamation.

A pneumatic seed metering system was designed, fabricated, and mounted on the drill. The metering device was tested under laboratory conditions which simulated varying terrain slope and field speed with seeds of various hardwood tree by: 1.
