ECOLOGICAL RECONSTRUCTION OF FOREST LAND IN THE AREA SICHEVIŢA, CARAŞ-SEVERIN COUNTY PUBLISHEDC. Covaci, M. Lazarovici, D. Covaci
Forest- management activities include use of heavy machines in forest harvests, removal of vegetation, burring and scarification. These management manipulations can alter soil properties and susceptibilities to erosion. The paper refers to the forest reconstruction in the area Gavrini from the village Sicheviţa, on a great inclined slope, with a substratum composed of sandstone or limestone and covered with a strong and excessive erosion of Skeleti-dystric Cambisols. The improvement perimeter occupies 20 ha, but the area proposed for forestation has only 6.3 ha. The natural forest vegetation consists of Quercus frainetto, Corylus avellana and Crataegus monogyna. The forest site has ability for Pinus nigra, Carpinus orientalis, Eleagnus angustifolia and Hippophae rhamnoides. It has been proposed some reclamation works, revetment of the banks and the river bed with mattress and wincher work, planting of young plant in the hearths with 60/80 cm and pits of 30/30/30 cm. The numbers of the young plant necessary for the first year was 31.500 pieces.
