Annotation

Introduction of new promising species for accelerated wood growth is quite effective in re-forestation. The aim of the paper is to study variability of vitality and the height of Lodge-pole pine and Scots pine in the experimental plantations in the Komi Republic, founded in 2006 and 2007 in the Kranozatonskoe and Syktyvkar forestries. The seeds of Lodgepole pine from six Swedish seed plantations were used. As a control we used the seeds of Scots pine of local origin. In the course of the research the height and vitality of plants were measured. The capacity for survival of Lodgepole pine was better than Scots pine (79 % and 58 % respectively). Lodgepole pine exceeded Scots pine in height growth. Lodgepole pine had a good resistance to fungal diseases. That fact also contributed to the better capacity for survival in the first years of growth. Software package Statistica 6.0 was used for the statis-tical analysis. The differences between Lodgepole pine and Scots pine were statistically significant (p < 0.05) by vitality and height growth. In turn, the origins of Lodgepole pine were not statistical different. It is important to note, that Lodgepole pine is sufficiently sta-ble under the climatic conditions of the Republic of Komi.
