The Analysis of Efficiency for Introducting Kornakovsky Logging in Ternopil Region

M.V. Matusyak


A significant amount of felling in stock and area requires the introduction of measures to recover the stands. Consequently various methods and kinds of felling aimed at natural treee stand recovering have been used since the mid 29th century. Kornakovsky logging method is one of them. Thus, the purpose of our research is to explore the features and use of this method in Ternopil region. Oak forest stands in Galileo Cottage Forest Stand in Chortkiv Forestry. The results of the research are as follows. In 1950 Kornakovsky logging method was applied in Galileo Cottage Forest Stand array. This area was divided into 24 narrow band width 25 m. where continuous logging was conducted. Forest area where felling took place both in the summer and winter had the contiguity term not less than 3 years. The regular inspection of the facility, which was conducted in 1992 showed that the newly formed after cutting oak plantations share is low and mostly is about 1 %, and in some areas it didn't exist. Oak share on this area was evaluated to be quite low. The largest share of the existing stand was ash mixed with large cypress. Insignificant part of cherries and other related species was noticed. Most areas in terms of security were not successful. This was due to delayed start of the illuminated for 4 and 5 year latency period and repetition held up to 4 years. Although these areas had no economic value because of the high proportion of small oak plantations in the composition, they performed protective functions. Thus, we have made the conclusions that the use of Kornakovsky felling enables providing a significant share of natural regeneration of mature oak stands and its relatively successful growth and development. The difficulty of lit and сleaning and their successful application in young natural stands is caused by uneven arrangement of oak in the area. This is a major factor in the low share of oak stands in part of a later age.
