The introduction of some agricultural land which has partially or totally lost their production capacity is and will be a very important action of Romanian forestry. This extends the forest fund and improves the climatic conditions around the planting areas. The research was carried out in two improvement perimeters near Diviciorii Mari, which assumed measurements of tree diameters, heights and harvesting increment cores. After the analysis of the data and increment cores, the results were associated with climatic data and the stands were found to suffer
from the effects of prolonged droughts. Also, these trees suffer from drying, windfalls and breaks of crowns due to the combination of droughts with slope and soil. The results obtained from the research were compared with the researches carried out at the Mineci-Ungureni Forest District between 1944 and 1955 and similarities were found regarding the influence of droughts on the radial and, implicitly, forest growths.
