Description
Soils from oil sands mining can be affected by salts leached from tailings or overburden materials – resulting in saline soil conditions. As a result, re-establishment of forests on saline sites is an important goal on reclaimed oil sands mines. Forest vegetation is typically thought to be intolerant of salinity, but there are rare examples of natural boreal forests growing on saline sites. By looking at these naturally saline sites we can help inform reclamation of sites with challenging saline soil conditions.
