Determination of the transplantation area

We can classify the factors that play role in the process of choosing field:

Soil characters of species that will be brought to the field,

Enable the mechanic tree mover to enter the field and make transplantation easily,

Choosing the best places for plants in terms of aesthetical and functional aspects,

By taking these criterions into consideration, the area of the campus transplantation area was determined to be: At the north of the library building, southwest of former Forest Engineering and Forest Industrial Engineering building, northwest of Landscape Engineering and Vocational School of Higher Education and the area on the right side of campus entrance was chosen.

4.1.1 Choosing plants

Time is crucial in transplantation process. The plant that is removed should be transferred to the plantation area as soon as possible. This is why, the species that would be brought to campus were chosen in meetings held with Bartin Forestry Operation Directorate. Chosen areas were in the area that belonged to Bartin Central Forestry Operation Directorate, Bogaz district Pinus pinea L. plantation. Special importance was given in order to enable mechanic tree mover move freely; the chosen area was a level land as much as possible, there were no other plant species that were very close to the working area.

While choosing the species, it was very important to choose plants whose habitats were similar with the area that they will be planted; on the other hand, their colors, forms, texture and line of these plants were very important in terms of creating the desired effect in the field.

Removal and planting, namely transplantation of some species of trees are easier than the others. Tree species that have shallow roots with hairy, thin and compact root systems are more successfully transplanted than the species that have thin roots and taproots which go deep in the soil. But if the maintenance of the species which have thin root and taproot system is done carefully, they can be transplanted successfully and they can live long. By taking these criterions into consideration, at the end of researches and analysis in Bogaz district Pinus pinea plantation it was determined that 3 Pinus pinea L., 1 Pinus nigra Arnold., 3

Cedrus libani A. Rich., 1 Prunus avium L. and Malus floribunda Sieb. were chosen to be planted (Figure 9, 10 and 11).

The Picea punges Engelm. that was placed at the north of Bartin University public housing, at the south of information building in Faculty of Forestry was a decorative species, but it had lost its aesthetical aspect in the area. Because of this, in order to use the tree more aesthetically, it was determined that it should be transplanted. North side of plant was marked with oil color and it was transplanted according to these marks.
