The purpose of the research is to study the peculiarities of adaptation of introduced wood and shrub flora in urban areas of the North. Dendrointroducents were evaluated by the method of Kohno, calculating the number of acclimatization, using the most important at the introduction in the North indicators (hardiness, generative development, seasonal growth), taking into account their weight ratio. The Highest comprehensive assessment of adaptive capacity received the following introduced species: balsam poplar, golden currant, chokeberry Aronia, Saskatoon profusely, rose wrinkled; the lowest comprehensive assessment received Siberian cedar, brilliant cotoneaster. Pea tree, blood-red hawthorn, red elderberry, turf white, honeysuckle, spruce barbed, linden, lilac Hungarian have good adaptability. The results of a comprehensive assessment of the adaptive capacity of introduced species allow us to recommend to use them in the cities and towns of the Arkhangelsk region.
