There are included eight of the largest settlements in the region - Plovdiv, Pazardjik, Stamboliiski, Asenovgrad, Popovitsa, Hissar, Banya and Karlovo. There are 27 of the most common coniferous trees and shrubs in Bulgaria. According to a special methodology, the living and decorative level of these species was determined. Coniferous species were found to be the smaller part of the total number of plants invested in the parks and gardens of this part of the Thracian Plain. The vitality and decorativity of the majority of individuals is considered unsatisfactory.

Restrict the use of the species Abies alba, Abies concolor, Pinus nigra, Metasequoia gliptostroboides. Expand the use of the species Cedrus, Chamaecyparis, Picea, Pinus, Cupressus, Juniperus.
