Abstract

The aim of this study was to determine the condition of beech sapling in terms of growth and the development in the region of mountains Prosara. Knowledge of state and speed growth of young forest is an important indicator that tells about the possibility of young of certain kind to fight in the first years of life with the representatives of the ground floor of flora that threaten to choke, so disable natural regeneration of stands. It is also wanted to determine which interaction relationships and dependencies rule between paricular parts of young such as stem (height, fresh and dry weight of stem) and leaf (leaf number, fresh and dry weight of the leaf).
