Many properties of forest stands in the boreal main zone have means that are specific to each boreal zone (i.e. subzones of the main climatic zone). These properties are arranged in zonal systems, called forest vegetational zones. The paper examines the vegetative productivity using three climatic variables: the effective temperature sum, the duration of the vegetation period, and the maximum soil frost penetration; each of them means for the period 1961-2000.
