The present paper provides practical advice on high elevation afforestation of Scots pine under the adverse environmental conditions of the low-subalpine elevational zone in the mountains of northern Anatolia. Research was focused in particular on the effects of microsite conditions on the growth of seedlings and on appropriate planting techniques for use in mountainous regions.
