Description
When clearing mine sites for development, forest floor material is salvaged and often directly placed onto nearby reclamation sites. Soils salvaged from aspen forests have significant quantities of root fragments contained in these materials. Aspen roots are known to produce aspen suckers following disturbance and this potential may be used to quickly establish aspen on reclamation sites. We conducted an operational scale trial to determine what factors impact the ability of root fragments to regenerate and produce viable aspen suckers. We considered the influence of soil salvage depth and root fragment characteristics, such as size and carbon (food) reserves.
