THE SOIL CONDITIONS OF THE OAK STANDS IN THE SOUTHWEST PART OF BELARUS In the soil and climatic conditions of the oak stands (Quercus robur L.) grown installed: features of the state land-groundwater conditions on the water physical properties and moisture capacity; the regularities of distribution and content of nutrients were revealed; the granulometric composition of soil were established and the group and factional composition of humus were determined. The studies found that in the

Oak-woods in the floodplains of Pripyat grow on floodplain sod gley sabulous soils with content of physical clay in humus horizons up to 20%. Soil conditions of oaks by water-physical characteristics, moisture reserves and agrochemical indicators are better in floodplain forests, while by density and granulometric texture-in upland types of oak-woods.
