Description
Introduction This the second in the series of progress reports on the non-cultivated disturbed areas revegetation project deals with powerline rights-of-way and to a limited extent strip mines. The previous report dealt with pipeline rights-of-way and tar sand mining areas. Powerline rights-of-way were surveyed throughout the province to find out what vegetation was growing on them and if reseeding was if required. The Whitewood coal mine at Wabamun was surveyed to determine the success of past revegetation projects and the extent of natural revegetation. Objectives • To determine the need if any for seeding of powerline rights-of-way. • To find the native and naturalized species most likely to be useful for seeding when reseeding is required. • To see which species are likely to be useful within the various soil zones. • To find those species most likely to be useful in the revegetation of strip mines. • To make recommendations on which species should be considered for use in which soil zones.
