The study analyses the growth of beech seedling fine roots and their development in the first five years. The research plots were established in 1997–2003 in community forests of Starý Plzenec (Western Bohemia, Czech Republic). The data are based on annual reviews of beech samplings extracted from surveyed plots. The whole root volume as well as the fine root volume is significantly (on a 95% significance level) growing during the first years after outplanting and there is not any disruption of growth immediately after outplanting.Keywords:beech; seedlings; total root volume; fine root volume; root growth
