Abstract

Greenhouse and field trials with Eucalyptus tereticornis growing on neutral to alkaline mine tailings have demonstrated responses to N, P and boron. Regular applications were found necessary for sustained growth. The use of trees as pioneer vegetation on tailings is considered feasible under Bougainville conditions.
