This paper focuses on the analysis of severe damage caused in the forest stands of the Sudetic Mountains by a hurricane-force wind induced by an extra-tropical cyclone. The study area included 16 Forest Districts extending over the forested part of the Polish Sudetes. The analysis was based on historic background for the area, and information on past damage done to forest stands as consequence of the impact of very strong wind. The bulk of the data which helped in estimating the extent of wind-related damage in the forest stands of the Sudetes Mts. included the mass of large timber withdrawn from the affected areas after the Kyrill storm in 2007. This paper also underlines one of the main geomorphological processes initiated by a blown down tree – the same uprooting as dominates on many forested hillslopes of the temperate climatic zone. – (BJ)
