The reconstruction of degraded land is a permanent job and their inventory ends only at thecompletion process of improvement. Man by his irrational activity contributes to the development andinitiation processes erosion and subsequently through a rational activity, appropriate measures andworks to prevent and combat this damage. Vegetation is the best choice for soil erosion control, botheconomically and its effectiveness. The research was conducted in the area of improving Luncani-Turda, Turda in Forest, an area of 385 ha, where the progress and effectiveness of forest cropsinstalled was followed. Most of this land is affected by various forms of erosion, landslides mostly.Preliminary work afforestation was made in 1985, following extensive studies. Advantages ofafforestation are observed only after a number of years, initially is observed the protective role offorest vegetation. The economic effects are represented by the production of wood, berries andcreating favorable conditions for hunting.
