Tree planting can accelerate the conversion of mine sites into forests after closure, thereby decreasing environmental impacts on forested landscapes. However, few studies have investigated tree planting to reclaim metalliferous mine tailings. To mitigate the restrictions to tree growth associated with mine tailings, soils and amendments can be used. A(More)
Tree water uptake relies on well-developed root systems. However, mine wastes can restrict root growth, in particular metalliferous mill tailings, which consist of the finely crushed ore that remains after valuable metals are removed. Thus, water stress could limit plantation success in reclaimed mine lands. This study evaluates the effect of substrates(More)
