In this paper we have analyzed the quantitative and qualitative dispersion of lying dead wood in two streambeds of the Sopron Mountains, the Tolvaj-árok and the Vadkan-árok. The estimation of the lying dead wood was made with the line transect method by perpendicular transects at the two valleys. The amount of dead wood was higher (30,66 m3/ha) in the Tolvaj-árok compared to the Vadkan-árok (21,23 m3/ha). The distribution of dead wood showed strong heterogenity on the study area for the three studied parameters (decay stage, diameter and tree species). The amount of fallen dead wood increased with stand age. Concerning forest communities, the largest amount of dead wood has been found in the sessile oak-hornbeam forests.
