DescriptionThis report is written to elucidate some of the problems encountered in the planting of trees on strip-mined areas in Maryland. When problems are recognized, normally a solution (or at least, an improvement) can be instituted to alleviate the problem. The methods cited herein are those of experienced foresters engaged in strip-mine planting during the past seventeen years. Although these methods might seem very basic, the procedure and tools explained in this report give the best results with the least amount of confusion.
