Abstract (in english)
   As a consequence of immission calamity, large deforested areas had to be reforested in the Ore Mountains, on more then 30,000 ha. On almost 4,400 ha of the forest area, the bulldozer site preparation was used, applying heavy machinery at plot preparation, planting and care for new plantations. Removal of the surface humus represented, in respective site conditions, lethal site devastation and has prevented successful growth and development of tree plantings due to the key role of the humus forms. Restoration of the humus form compartment of the forest ecosystem represents the dominant factor in the revitalisation of functioning forest ecosystems in the area of interest.
