During 1976, a variety of methods and materials were used in the search for afforestation practices that will assist in the establishment of a self sustaining vegetation cover compatible with land use objectives for the A1berta oil sands area. The project study area is located on the Great,...
Report and Recommendations of the Task Force on Tree and Shrub Planting on Active Oil Sands Tailings DamsDownload
Dam safety concern over the planting of trees and woody shrubs is in conflict with progressive reclamation, which is also a desirable outcome for oil sands tailings dams. International dam safety practice commonly restricts trees and woody shrubs on the downstream slopes of dams to preclude...
Revegetation of Oil Sands Tailings: Growth Improvement of Silver-berry and Buffalo-berry by Inoculation with Mycorrhizal Fungi and N2-fixing BacteriaDownload
The ability of actinorhizal shrubs to tolerate inhospitable conditions while improving soil fertility and organic matter status has led to increased usage of these plants for land reclamation and amenity planting purposes. Silver-berry and buffalo-berry are two such shrubs which are being tested...
The objectives of the study are to: • conduct a review of readily available information on the establishment and management of woody plants on level and gently sloping (less than 15 percent) amended tailings sand and other similar sites; and • prepare a critical evaluation of the information and...
