Lucian DINCĂ, Iulian BRATU


The present study analysed the stand of the main forest formations from West Plain based on their composition, age classes, diameters, heights, and the spatial distribution. The stands’ analysis did not limit to the study of the distribution of forest species, but also covers aspects regarding the flora, climate and soil. In short, the study presents both the forest station as well as the forest type. The analysed stands belong to the period 1995-2008, from 121608 ha located in the West Plain. The stands are managed by 13 Forests Districts and contain 151 stand elements older than 120 years.
