Abstract: Road-side trees lining a section of the federal highway B 185 northwest of Köthen (Sachsen-Anhalt) werecounted and evaluated according to their vitality three times between 1983 and 1997/98. The results show adramatic decrease in the number of the trees. Reasons therefore are the Iack of tree management (especiallyfruit trees) and the felling of many trees in connection with the road maintenance and road extension measures.Whereas the removal of damaged and dead trees is justified, the cutdown of vital trees, in particular of more orless complete rows (including fruit trees) has drastic effects. Newly planted trees provide, however, only aninadequate compensation. In particular, this becomes apparent in sparsely structured and intensively used farmIands. Road-side trees play not only an important role in livening up the monotony of such agricultural areas butthey are also characteristic elements of our culturallandscape.
