To assess the creation of artificial vegetation cover in technogenically dis? turbed landscapes, the following were taken into account: principles and methods for creating artificial vegetation cover on industrially disturbed lands; measures of the biological stage of reclamation; technology for growing seedlings with a closed root system for the purpose of reclama? tion of technogenic lands; key chemical and physicochemical properties of soils; content of basic nutrients in soils; microelements in soils and so on. Our research has shown the need to use mineral fertilizers for more efficient growth and development of plant communities in reclamation areas. From the results it follows that the use of the presented technol? ogy makes it possible to quickly restore the main components of the ecosystem  vegetation, soil and soil zoomicrobial complex, eliminate the longest stage of restoration succession  the initial one, and accelerate the passage of the second  herbaceous one; and the third  the stage of small-leaved trees and shrubs. This technology helps prevent wind and water erosion.
