The main goal of the project is the selection of optimal habitat for Sorbus torminalis tree (one of the rarest species of native forest trees) with particular consideration of the reclaimed quarry in the area of Górażdże Limestone Quarry. The project will determinate the optimal number of trees used in unnatural planting per one surface area unit. Moreover, teaching materials on the methods of Sorbus torminalis planting on mining areas will be prepared (information leaflets aimed at the promotion of biodiversity). The project will be realized in two parts. The first one will be recognition of Sorbus torminalis population within the impact range of the mine and in adjacent area. The next stage will be optimization of habitat selection for the introduction of Sorbus torminalis trees.
