Ten replicates of 19 woody species were planted on a 10-year-old, completed sanitary landfill. An area of nearby old forest land served as a control. During the first 2 years after planting, blackgum (Nyssa sylvatica Marsh.), gingko (Gingko biloba L.), and Japanese black pine (Pinus thunbergii L.) tolerated the landfill conditions better than others. Soil oxygen, carbon dioxide, moisture content, bulk density, and temperature affected the survival of vegetation on the landfill. Forest Sci. 27:13-18.
