Abstract: The revegetation of high elevation sites is a difficult task. Such sites are characterized by soils that are extremely variable and methods that have proven quite successful on low elevation sites, have at best, met with limited success on sites located above timberline. New and innovative approaches to revegetation are required if disturbed high elevation areas are to be successfully and permanently reclaimed. Recent research has led to a better understanding of the biological processes that are critical to the sustained health of high elevation ecosystems. This in turn has lead to the development of products designed to re-establish microbial activity in the soil thereby enhancing chances for long term, low maintenance revegetation success. The use of special organic fertilizers, in combination with site specific seed mixes, provide a viable, cost effective method of re-establishing permanent, environmentally compatible vegetation on high elevation sites that have been disturbed by either industrial activity or natural processes.
