DescriptionBlack locust (Robinia pseudoacacia) plays an important role in Hungarian forestry and represents 21.6% of the total forested area (370 thousand hectares); approximately 19.2% of the area in Hungary is forested. Black locust forests have increased by more than one percent over the last 5 years demonstrating that it is a preferred tree species particularly among the owners of private forests (45% of Hungarian forests are privately owned). Consequently, there is a lot of concern about the health of locust stands throughout the country. In order to monitor the trend in locust stands, we established a network of 20 sample plots containing 2,400 individually marked trees. These trees are assessed in detail twice each year. In addition, we obtain data on tree health from the reports of the Forest Health Monitoring Network.
