For The characteristics of root system formation in example, in conifer plantations, the morphometric L. sukaczewii under conditions of UIC were studied by parameters of needles (Pristupa and Mazepa, 1987) and the method of monoliths (Kolesnikov, 1962; Kra- stem structure (Spesivtsev, 1998) are altered, and the sil’nikov, 1983). Monoliths 20 cm in length, 20 cm in radial increment (Ziganshin, 1996) and apical growth width, and 10 cm in height were used. A total of six soil (Mazepa and
