Abstract


Information about the distribution of gray pine and pitch pine at the forest stands of the Western region of Ukraine has been summarized. The main forestry and inventory indices of forest stands plots are defined. We calculated the stock of modal premature, mature and over mature gray pine and pitch pine stands in the conditions of the Western region of Ukraine. It was found that pitch pine plantations are highly productive, characterized by high stocks of trunk timber and high yield class. In turn, forest stands containing gray pine are less productive.
