ANALYSIS OF CHOSEN DENDROMETRIC FEATURES OF EUROPEAN ASH (FRAXINUS EXCELSIOR L.) GROWING IN DIVERSIFIED HABITAT CONDITIONS
Keywords: Fraxinus excelsior L., forest site type, dendrometric features, slenderness
Admission. The paper presents an analysis of selected dendrometric features of European ash growing on the forest site types belonging to the fresh broadleaved forest, moist broadleaved forest, riparian forest and alder-ash forest. The aim of the research was to determine the impact of habitat diversity on the formation of breast height, height and slenderness of the species in question.
Material and methods of research. The research material was collected on four chosen areas representing different habitat conditions, located in the Babki, Konstantynowo, Łopuchówko and Poznań Municipal For- est Districts. In tree stands belonging to the fourth age class, research areas of 25 ar were established. Trees belonging to the 1st and 2nd Kraft classes were selected for the measurements. Then tree height and diameter at breast height of ash were measured. Basic statistical characteristics were calculated and a one-way analysis of variance was carried out due to the forest site type of the given stand.
Results and conclusions. The analysis showed the diversification of selected dendrometric features of European ash depending on the forest site type.
