The study was located in a Scots pine plantation established on the outer dumping ground of the Lignite
Mine in Bełchatów using different seedling production methods. The seedlings used in the study were raised in
a bare-root forest nursery, a foil greenhouse and a container nursery mycorrhized and not-mycorrhized with
the fungus Hebeloma crustuliniforme. The survival of seedlings in the first year after planting, their growth
based on height and root collar diameter measurements and the degree of root mycorrhization were determined. The Scots pine seedlings growing under the outer dumping ground conditions were evaluated for their
usefulness in silvicultural practice taking account of the method of their production.
