The analysed submontane beech forest (Fagenion moesiacae submontanum B. Jov. 1976)is situated in Eastern Serbia (Majdan-Kucajna, compartment 33a). Stand area is 22.7 ha. Its altitude is410-520 m and the slope is 7–28°. Parent rock consists of dense limestone, and the soil iscalcocambisol. The stand is uneven-aged, managed under group selection, with a volume percentageof beech is 97%. Other statistics of the stand are: site class II, canopy closure 0.9, mean diameter39.4 cm, and Lorey’s mean height 31.0 m. For biomass evaluation, circular sample plots of 500 m2size were used with the area intensity of 5%. While the aboveground biomass amounts to 337.69tons/ha or 85.9%, belowground biomass makes 55.49 tons/ha or 14.1% of the total biomass. Theproportion of timber in the aboveground biomass is 89.7%, brushwood 9.3% and leaves 1.0%.Estimation of biomass of the uneven-aged beech high forest was based on the results of investigationson European beech in Central/Western Europe.
