INVENTORY OF WILD SERVICE TREE, SORBUS TORMINALIS (L.) CRANTZ, IN THE TACZANóW FOREST INSPECTORATE
Keywords: Sorbus torminalis, inventory, acid oak forests of Quercetea roboli-petraeae class
The aim of this paper was inventory of the wild service tree (Sorbus torminalis), a very precious but, at the same time, one of the least known species of homeland wooded plants in the Taczanów Forest Inspectorate (Poznań Regional State Forest Directorate). The inventory was conducted from May 2010 to March 2011. The result of the inventory are 1127 specimens, of which 209 are strong mature trees and 918 are seedlings and young trees in good health. The field research shows that the wild service tree grows in the Taczanów Forest alongside its central and eastern part in 22 Forest Compartments, 8 of which are in the Koryta Forest District and 14 are in the Taczanów Forest District. The average height of mature trees (d1.3 > 10 cm) was 18.02 meters and the average breast height dimension was 26.22 centimetres. The dominant forest type in this area which is acid oak forest from Quercetea roboli-petraeae class creates optimal conditions for the growth of the wild service tree. This is proved by an analysis of the species population dynamics which is characteristic for the species biology. The study shows that earlier inventories conducted in this region are incomplete and out-of-date, and this present inventory substantially broadens the knowledge about the wild service tree in the Taczanów Forest in the context of its local and national population.
