Abstract

Third-year survival and height are compared for autumn olive. European black alder, flowering crab apple, sawtooth oak, and Virginia pine on a sandy clay loam spoil bank in South Carolina. Flowering crab apple and sawtooth oak exhibited the best survival, while autumn olive and European black alder had greater height growth. Only European black alder failed to become adequately established. Autumn olive and sawtooth oak were judged most successful under the conditions of the study. Fruit was set by autumn olive saplings during the second growing season.
