Abstract

Proposes, with supporting Hungarian evidence, that on good sites R. pseudoacacia should share the overstorey with fast growers, e.g. Poplars, and have a Hornbeam understorey. On poor sites, only species biologically suited e.g. Pinus nigra var. austriaca should be mixed with it and then...
