Vesicular- arbuscular mycorrhizal associations with plants are widely distributed and are geographically ubiquitous. Vesicular- arbuscular mycorrhiza (VAM) fungi a group of important soil micro-organism. VAM importance in iron ore mines for revegetation and reclamination. In these present work inoculation studies with VAM of existing five tree species are namely, Dulbergia sisso, Gmelina arborea, , Diospyros melanoxylon, Delonix regia, Dendrocalamus strictus, in nursery pot culture. Comparative studies in different parameter like percentage root infection, no. of VAM, root length, shoot length, fresh and dry biomass, root and shoot length ratio, fresh and dry biomass ratio within 90 days inoculation. In many parameters the VAM inoculated plants show better performance and encouraged results compare then non inoculated control plants.
