Abstract

Main tasks of this paper was recording of all types of dendroflora on research object in order to determine their vitality and decorativeness and health. Climate, soil, orogenic and vegetation characteristics are established as well as species adaptation on urban environment conditions, degree of their damage due to the specific microclimate conditions which is result of imision of air pollution, exhaust fumes, excessive warm-up asphalt in the summer. Research object has 13 tree species. Softwood were presented with 3 species (48 trees), and hardwood with 10 species (171 trees). Only woody species are presented on this green area. Based on obtained results, recommendations for the interpolation of those species that will give the desired results were given. The results indicate that their application is possible in the field of planning and landscape architecture design facilities, for all urban functional system.
