ANALYSIS OF CONDITION AND DENDROMETICAL PARAMETERS OF DOUGLAS FIR
Keywords:Douglas - fir, height, diameter, crown widht
The research was made in the regional department of VMU Dubrava at Vaišvydava forest district. This object is included into protected areas of Regional park of Kaunas reservoir. Measurements of Douglas fir height, width, crown width were made, also the condition was determined in visual. All data was processed in MS Excell.
Aim of the research is to evaluate dendrometical parameters and to determine the condition of the trees. After measurements, according to results obtained, we made an analysis that according the the condition of the tree, dendemetrical parameters are almost indifferent when condition of the tree is good and when condition is dried, overdried or tree is withered. When comparing the data according to habitats (infertile and fertile), dendrometrical parameters differs a lot. In the most fertile Ndp habitat even the height and diameter is larger, in comparisson with normal humidity Na habitat.
