Abstract

One of the important forestry measures for the regeneration of indigenous, productive, sustainable and perennial plantations is the conversion of secondary and low-value stands. For the replacement of low-value and secondary young stands with targeted ones, conversion felling and artificial regeneration of forests are implemented. Peculiarities of growth of Scots pine, Norway spruce, English oak, and green ash trees at the plots after conversion felling of low-value young stand by the corridor method are considered. The parameters of the current increment in height of the main tree species were determined during the 10-year period after conversion before and after tending felling depending on the tree species, the width and direction of the corridors, the method of establishing forest stands growing in the corridors. The health condition of trees for the main species was assessed and proposals for the subsequent forestry activities were presented. The influence of light condition, air temperature, humidity and soil density on the health and growth indicators of main tree species was studied.
