Considering the abusive exploitation of wood in the North-Western part of Romania, we proposed a study comparing the years 2011, 2015 and 2017, in which to obtain data on: area of grubbed-up land, quantity of wood felled, but also number of coniferous trees needed for the reforestation of the area chosen in the study. For a more elaborate analysis of the area of interest we realized a DTM, in order to determine the slopes, the mountainsides, the exposure to the sun and some areas of a certain elevation to determine which area is most exposed to deforestation as well as the area most protected from exploitation. For this purpose, the deforested areas were classified depending on the nearest access road, namely the county road DJ 18. The data we used to achieve our goal consists of images and coordinates taken from the Google Earth application, and then using the TransDatRo application we converted the geographical coordinates (B, L, H) into Stereo coordinates 1970 (X, Y, Z). The data processing and analysis was made in the ArcMap application. Finally, the resulting data gives us an overview of the deforestation problem that Romania currently has, but also the negative impact it has on the soil.
