"The Value of Growing Oak in Russia"

Ershov, Bogdan Anatolyevich, Fedorov, Pavel


Due to the constant expansion of industrial production, irrational use of forest and agricultural lands, every year the forest area on our planet is decreasing, the area of desertified territories is increasing, the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is increasing. Forests cleanse the air of pollution and restore its optimal composition, produce phytoncides that can destroy pathogenic viruses and bacteria. A special burden falls on oak forests, which are located in areas with a high population density and intensive human activity. In sparsely wooded regions, man-made protective forest plantations play an extremely important role in agricultural production, which protect fields from strong winds, dust storms and soil erosion. With the participation of oak plantations, a more efficient type of landscape is formed - agroforestry landscape. Therefore, in these regions, the importance of the growth of oak grows even more.

Keywords: oak, land, forest, water, city.
