Some plant roots can ingest and immobilize unclean things, while others can process or group natural and supplement contaminants. The contribution of trees in decontamination of soil is taken into account; this review was formulated with the objectives of emphasizing of the role of agroforestry in phytoremediation of contaminated soils. Agroforestry is environmentally sounding natural resources management system. It promotes multiple benefits to the land users. Its role of naturalizing polluted soils is not trifling. There are potential agroforestry species undertaking decontamination of polluted soils. As an example, poplars and willows arc a number of the foremost preferred tree species. Varieties of agroforestry suitable plant species are found to be promising for phytoremediation of organic toxins. In tropical agroforestry Legume species have ability to decontaminate polluted soils. This bioremediation has opportunities since agroforestry species have multiple purposes. There must be a risk management to stop take-up of contaminants as a challenge. Generally, due to multipurpose nature, phytoremediation by agroforestry species is effective and environmentally sound. So it needs repeated field experiment of various agroforestry species and contaminates.
