Tree growth on adverse sites is mainly limited by low fertility and excess or deficient soil moisture. When sites are managed under shorter rotations using genetically improved stock, the loss of nutrients from the site with frequent harvesting may reduce site productivity. The use of specific mycorrhizal inoculum may be promising since individual species of mycorrhizal fungi can be selected that tolerate the stress conditions, clearcut sites, spoil banks, etc. and, thus enhance seedling growth.
