Mycorrhizal development from scratch

Recommended Posts

Anybody got any ideas on how long it will take for a functional mycorrhizal community to develop naturally on a new tree planting site on what was formerly a landfill, rough grazing and amenity grassland.   Are we talking years or decades, and what can be practically be  done to speed up the process?

Improve the rooting environment with wood chips and possibly innoculate with for soil. Commercial products with mycorrhizea are pretty sketchy IMO.
