ABSTRACT
The work attempts to determine, in the case of forestry reclamation at the North Bohemian Brown Coal Basin (Czech Republic), if a humus layer is formed naturally and if the volume thereof is influenced by the type and age of the forest stands. Soil data were obtained in a field research in the form of shallow dug probes when thickness of humus horizon was detected. The soil profile was determined according to the taxonomic soil classification system. The measured humus thickness was compared to the forest stand and age thereof using the T-test. In all experimental sites, disregard to the age and type of vegetation the formation of humic layer was observed. Differences in A0 horizon thickness for deciduous, mixed and coniferous forests at different ages were proved, which confirms the presumption that the thickness and formation of the humus layer is affected by age and type of vegetation.

Keywords: forestry reclamation, humus horizon, post mining locations
