ABSTRACT

This study focuses on the El Hamimet forest (eastern Algeria). Its ecological status is unknown until now and no system has been established to measure and monitor its viability. The objectives were to collect data on the current ecological state of this forest and to analyze the structure of the stands; for this purpose, we carried out an inventory in the field allowing the knowledge of quantitative data relating to these resources from dendrometric parameters collected on 4 plots of softwoods. The results obtained show that the species Pinus halepensis is the most abundant with 425 tree/ha or 95.41%; the average basal area is 23.41 m2/ha and offers a significant quantity of wood 132.95 m3/ha, and therefore it is the main species among all the species studied.
