General Site Description: 

The chestnut forest in Belasitza has complex space structure and distorted age structure. In the community a tendency for substitution of the chestnut by other tree species is present. The degradation of the chestnut stands is seen by the degree of damage. The chestnut stands play a useful role in rain water chemistry regulation – under their crowns rain water with more favorable acidity reaches the soil.
