Description of project

The main objective of the project will be to establish effective procedures for the restoration of spruce forests in areas of its intensive large-scale subsidence with the use of both nurse and target trees, so that the successive stands are sufficiently differentiated, have a high degree of stability and has production and non-production functions under changing conditions environment. The partial aims will be to verify the methods of planting the stands and introducing target trees as a two-phase restoration in rapidly dying forests, planting nurse stands and optimizing of thinning in these crops to increase their stability, the economic efficiency of the processes will also be assessed.
