Leadisone of the most dangerous heavy metals for human. The studies of lead migration in the soil as are significantly important to forecast the transfer factors of lead in ecosystems. The paper represents data of lead concentration in dependence of the soil depth and degrees of anthropogenic impact. The research revealed influence of anthropogenic impact and species of arboreal vegetation on Pb migration in the soil profile. The results of lead concentration positively varyin the soil due to anthropogenic impact from 62.2 mg/kg to 139 mg/kg. The effect of arboreal vegetation species results in the high Pb migration down the soil profile in pine and birch sites and preferable accumulation of Pb in the upper humus horizon in the oak sites.
