ca 3,000 indd·ha–1 (being ca 1,000 indd·ha–1 higher than 20 cm) and irregular distribution across the plot. The non-target species birch on the “seeding” variant showed a high density of plants (131,000 indd·ha–1) being eight times higher than the succession variant. The cost of the regeneration treatment was different between the variants – planting: 5,000–6,000 EUR·ha–1, 1,300 EUR·ha–1, succession: 1,000 EUR·ha–1. Comparing to “planting” the higher diversity of tree species and higher density of non-target species (20,000–134,000 EUR·ha–1) in the “seeding” and “succession” variants promise success for the future, however the real potential of regeneration methods that were used will be clear after long-term observations.
