Natural Regeneration of Oak and Hornbeam under the Canopy and Log Cabins in the State Enterprise "Korsun-Shevchenko Forestry"

G.P. Isсhuk


The reproduction of hornbeam both natural and cultural is an important issue nowadays. Seed propagation for this species is considered to be the best way to reproduce. The regularities of the process of regeneration under the canopy of oak and hornbeam forests and log cabins in fresh oak forests in Korsun-Shevchenkivskyi forestry are the key problems of the research presented. After having conducted the research we have obtained the results stating that in mature stands of the Korsun-Shevchenko forestry fresh oak dominated for fullness of the cover. Furthermore, all log cabins show intense natural seed recovery. However, the composition of the natural seed recovery is not always correlated with the composition of the felled tree stand. The feature of beech seed recovery is that it undergrowth kept under a tent spaces, self-seeding and appears in log cabins after logging parent stand. Thus we shoul summarize that forest recovery process in fresh oak and hornbeam forests of state enterprise "Korsun-Shevchenko forestry" is satisfactory. In normal conditions oak and hornbeam of forestry bloom and bear fruit every year, but abundant crops depend on weather conditions once in 3-5 years. Under a canopy of plantations of populations of the common oak in blocks of Korsun-Shevchenko forestry through intensive expansion of grass cover and shrubs, and with not enough seats of oak and lack of proper care resumes is unsatisfactory. The most successful is a natural renewal of hornbeam populations.
