Green plantations are an integral part of urban planning structure of the city and the most important part of its environmental framework. They enter in a life-support system of the city as the most important environment formation factors and environment protection to ensure comfort and quality of the human environment, and as a compulsory element of the urban landscape. Any interference with nature, human recreational activities in the forest parks have both positive and negative sides. When recreational use of parks emerge adverse environmental changes that can be dangerous to continue the natural development of natural components. The character and the degree of influence of recreational load on the state of tree plantations in the forest park "Druzhba" in Vladimir were studied. All studies were conducted according to generally accepted silvicultural - taxational techniques with the measurement of the main indicators of taxation. Also were studied the sanitary state of the stand and its decorative qualities. The studies found that, depending on the degree of recreation the following quantitative and qualitative changes of forest park phytocenoses take place, namely: to most recreational load are subjected these types of forests as Quercetum caricoso (pilosae)-Aegop?dium, Quercetum caricoso (pilosae), Quercetum Corylus-Aegop?dium; value of the mean diameter of the squares with a high degree of exposure is reduced compared to the reference object, subjected to a minimum of recreational load; quantitative measure of trees per 1 ha of plantations in recreational low degree of exposure to 2-fold higher than high recreational areas.
