This chapter discusses the effect of sawdust amendment on the bacterial populations in wood and rhizosphere soil in two habitats, afforested post-agricultural sites and forests, and the interactions between bacteria and fungi inhabiting wood. We evaluated and compared the bacterial biota: (i) in two types of soil, before and after the addition of wood (in the form of pine sawdust mixed with soil) under the roots of planted seedlings; (ii) the studies were performed in autumn and spring to evaluate the influence of low temperatures on the bacterial populations, and (iii) in roots of Scots pine at plantations where stumps were previously colonized by the saprotrophic Phlebiopsis gigantea or the pathogenic Heterobasidion annosum and Armillaria ostoyae. The qualitative and quantitative changes in bacterial communities in soil and in wood of roots on both arable and forest soils are discussed.
