Abstract

This thesis presents the research results on fruit tree alleys located in the area of Stare Czarnowo commune and their influence on the regional landscape diversity. Fruit tree alleys serve as a perfect landscape arranging component which orders the space and performs many natural functions. After the II World War trees were sparsely planted along the road sides and for over 60 years alleys they created have been thoughtlessly devastated. Few of them remained until today, mainly in the West Pomeranian district. In the territory of Stare Czarnowo there were 8 fruit alleys of a different habitat to select and take stock of. Among them: woodlots, roadside shrubs and the avenue created in the area of Dendrological Garden in Glinna. Specimen considered for the research had to be at least 30 cm in the trunk circumference. Among 374 of stock taken plants 4 were identified as fruit trees. There were 125 specimen of the size qualifying them to be regarded as the nature monuments. Fruit trees alleys have a huge impact on diversity of natural habitat. Due to its historical grounds they should be more often and widely used in shaping the rural landscape.
