In Romania, in the last years, an increasing attention is given to the afforestation of degraded lands. According to recent statistics, across the country there are more than two million hectares of degraded terrains. In most of the cases, the afforestation works are carried out by specialized units and the projects are monitored by the territorial branches of the ministry responsible for forestry (i.e. Forest Guards). The afforestation projects are done based on the technical norms issued by the ministry responsible for forestry (i.e. Ministry of Environment, Waters and Forests). For each type of degraded land, situated in a certain region, one, two or even more alternatives regarding the usage of specific tree and shrub species are proposed. The aim of this study was to highlight the best afforestation solution (i.e. the most suitable allochthonous tree species) of the salt-affected terrains as they are described in the Technical Norms regarding the compositions, schemes and technologies for forest regeneration and afforestation of degraded lands. The best alternative resulted by using an Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP), that took into account five allochthonous species and ten criteria.
