The paper shows differences in morphological and anatomical features of the Scots pine (Pinus sylvestris L.) growing on former agricultural and forest lands. It was found that at the same age and in the same climatic conditions Scots pines from former agricultural land had larger stem dimensions and needle sizes as compared with the trees growing on forest land. These results lead to an interesting conclusion connected with future afforestation and reforestiation in the Krynki Forest District.
