    Abstract : A survey of current management methods and an assessment of the recreational and conservation value of this forest near Kraków, Poland. The recent programme of conversion of damaged Pinus silvestris [P. sylvestris] stands to broadleaves resistant to industrial air pollution (notably Quercus rubra and Tilia cordata) and larch appears to be successful. Introducing a variety of species as mixtures and groups and retaining some weed species normally removed during cleaning should enhance recreational and aesthetic values. The important flora and wildlife elements identified during the survey need careful protection, but primarily efforts should be aimed at reducing industrial emissions which constitute the main threat to the forest.
