The study seed stand was singled out in the most preserved natural population of beech on Mt. Fruška Gora, with a predominantly spontaneous development till the age of 100 years, when it was selected as a seed stand. The proposed silvicultural and silvicultural-reclamation measures in the seed stand are aimed at the improvement of the functional role of seed trees. The proposed silvicultural measures are based on the analysis of biological-qualitative structure of the stems. Silvicultural and silvicultural-reclamation measures, as the components of the same system of measures, taking into account that they are carried out in an already formed stand, should be synchronised with other development tendencies in the stand. Silvicultural measures result in the higher abundance and coverage of blackberry in the herbaceous plant layer, so they should be performed during beech seed years aiming at beech regeneration and formation of understory. By the competition with blackberry and the canopy the woody species in the understory will lead to a favorable structure of the ground layer for the realization of the functional role of the seed stand in the next several-decade period.
