Abstract

In the past, stands from Working Unit Calina were composed especially of European beech and sessile oak. Today, there is a large proportion of linden in these stands. The analysis of archived data from old Management Plans represented the basis of the dynamic distribution of stands with linden in composition.The importance of tending operation to regulate the stand structure and composition was put in evidence in a study case. In this respect, cleaning respacing were made in management unit 3A and stand structure changes were showed: composition (the increase of oak species and the decrease of linden and other tree species from mid-strata), dendrometric characteristics (cleaning respacing from below with the increase of dendrometric characteristic). The tending intensity has been calculated and the important role of cleaning-respacing in order to modify stand composition according to with forest natural type was highlighted.
