    Description

    During the summer of 2002, data were collected from 22 post-Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act sites in southwestern Indiana. Tree growth across these sites was generally poor, with site index values typically less than 40 feet (base age 50) for upland oaks. Robinina pseudoacacia (black locust) was observed to be the primary overstory tree throughout sites and was not acting as a nurse tree for other species. No specific mining or reclamation technique encoun-tered in this study was associated with high site quality. Results of this study will be compared with more modern mining and reclamation techniques.
