The drought-induced vitality loss of sessile oak (Quercus petraea (Matt.) Liebl.) has been continuously observed in Hungary for more than three decades. On the other hand there are some publications about the accelerated and decelerating growth of this tree species in Hungary. The changing height growth was studied on dry sessile oak sites to decide the presence or absence of the accelerated growth of young stands neighbouring older one with mass mortality in the last decades. Results showed a significant accelerated height growth of young stands in dry landscapes. The mass mortality and the accelerated growth of sessile oak stands in the dry landscapes are not contradictory.
