Abstract—The study was conducted for changes the characteristic of coal mine spoil by growth of selected plant species. Soil characteristics of vegetated coal mine spoil land under plantations of plant species were assessed. The data obtained were compared with those of the coal mine spoil and the native forest soils. The results showed an improved soil status under different plantation stands compared to coal mine spoil. The silt and clay particles in soil were higher among different plantation stands in comparison to before plantation in coal mine spoil. Bulk density was highest in the plots of Azadirachta indica and lowest in Pisum sativum plots. Soil porosity percentage was decrease under different plantations. Water holding capacity was highest in the plots of Azadirachta indica and lowest in Pisum sativum plots. Organic carbon was decreased by before plantation in coal mine spoil and total nitrogen concentrations were higher in the plantation stands in comparison to the before plantation in coal mine spoil. The plantations enhanced the nutrient status of the degraded coal mine spoil land. The plant species were change the properties of coal mine spoil. The plant species Gossypium herbaceum, Pisum sativum and Azadirachta indica were generally found in the nearest agricultural land of coal mining area. 

Index Terms—coal mine spoil, plant species, texture, pH, soluble cations, organic carbon
