Information on the impact of industrial air pollutants on forest stands aid consequences on wood quality are a little mixed up and misleading. Some experiments made on pines 130-230 years old did not reveal serious changes of wood quality. In this work, we present results of investigations on wood from 60-year-old pine trees which were under the influence of air pollutants for about 40 years.

Such pine stands, of an age near the mean for the present forests in Poland, were the basis for some evaluations of financial losses in Poland due to the effects of air pollution on forests. Detailed data on the properties of the pine wood, which were the basis of the above-mentioned calculations, are also presented. The factors influencing economic losses are given based on the findings presented.
