ABSTRACT

The objective of the article is to emphasize necessity of addressing the topical problems
of areas arisen that were disturbed by industrial activities, so-called Brownfields, and
the possibility to utilize the knowledge in the field of education and to implement this
knowledge in practice as well. For this purpose the dendrological nature trail of VŠB -
Technical University Ostrava campus has been established. The trail can be found on
the territory that was strongly affected by industrial and mining activities and it is in the
vicinity of both the university and the place accessible to public. The dendrological trail
with woody plants suitable for utilization in the process of reclamation of areas arisen in
anthropogenic way including Brownfields was draw up for purposes of practice
education students and public. This territory proved suitability of fast-growing woody
plants with wide ecological valence and woody plants specialized for growing on debris
or fixed on the other specified conditions. Achieving the theoretical and practical
knowledge can students of a newly originated branch the European School
for Brownfields Redevelopment apply in practice.
