De-icing salt damage to trees and shrubs

Research Report (incl. Bulletins and Technical Papers)
M C Dobson
1991
Damage to roadside trees caused by de-icing salt is a potentially serious and often underestimated problem. World literature on the topic is reviewed. A comprehensive list of woody plants with their reported salt tolerance rankings is presented. Methods to reduce de-icing salt damage are evaluated, and use of alternative de-icing agents discussed. Ameliorants for the treatment of salt-contaminated soil are described.
