Abstract
This study identifies some of the critical factors that affect tree and shrub growth on reclaimed sanitary landfill sites and determines which woody species are adaptable to the adverse growth conditions of such sites. Trees planted at the Edgeboro Landfill, East Brunswick, New Jersey produced less shoot and stem growth and shallower roots than trees on the adjacent control plot. Of 19 woody species planted 4 years ago on a 14-year-old landfill, black gum and Japanese black pine proved to be the most tolerant and green as ash and hybrid poplar the least tolerant to landfill conditions. Root systems of the more tolerant species proved to be shallower than those of the landfill intolerant species.
