Abstract


Soil is a complex and dynamic factor that, needs to be studied, analyzed, known and understood. The spreading of soils in the territory is conditioned by the microrelief, lithology characteristics and the hydrographic network. This paper aims to establish the soil survey characteristics and soil evaluation of an agricultural land to be introduced into the national forest fund for afforestation.
In order to achieve the proposed goals, in addition to the classical works, orthophotomaps were used. To establish an afforestation solution, the main site characteristics were determined on the field: altitude, exposure, slope, functional category. These characteristics have been associated with laboratory analyzes to determine soil type, with orthophotomaps measurements and weather data. Analyzing the collected data, the land was enclosed in the bioclimatic hilly region of Turkey oak stand (FD2), where the main species best suited is the Turkey oak, mixed with flowering ash, field maple and pear-tree.


Keywords
