ENVIRONMENT AL CHARACTERISTICS AFFECTING PLANT GROWTH ON DEEP-MINE COAL REFUSE BANKS
Special Research Report SR-88 Mountains of black waste from the mining and processing of coal mar the landscape in many parts of Pennsylvania. They are not only eyesores, but major sources of air and water pollution as well. Although a cover of green vegetation would largely alleviate these problems, natural colonization by plants is slow and most attempts at planting fail. Therefore, a study of the factors which may limit plant growth was conducted as the first step in a search for feasible corrective measures.
