The publication presents an evaluation ofhealth status of roadside trees (growing between the road and the pavement) in the central part of the city of Opole. To assess the health condition of the trees the method proposed by 1. Duda was used, whereby the health of a tree is assessed in the twelve gradual scale. Among the surveyed trees, 13 species were found, of which the most abundant, constituting 63.8% of the examined group were: TWa cordata, Aesculus hippocastanum, Robinia pseudoacacia, Tilia platyphyllos. Eight native and five alien species in the domestic flora were distinguished. Among the studied objects definitely the largest share - 78.1 % had the trees in good health. The specimens in poor and very poor condition constituted 19.3% and 2.6% respectively. In the group representing the native species oftrees, 75.7% of the specimens in good condition, 21.0% in poor and 3.3% in very poor was noted, while among the alien species 81.4% were in good condition, 16.8% in bad and 1.8% in very poor. Among the factors negalively affecting the health status oftrees, mechanical damages, chloroses, pathogens and pests were identified.
