The communities of the grassland-wood transition are of major importance in the successional developments in this man-made vegetation complex.
Many species occurring in the region of the deciduous forests of Eurasia find their refuge in such transitional communities and are supposed to play an important part in the succession.
Ostrya carpinifolia is considered as an early successional tree species.
