Fast growing woody crops are currently a very important source for the generation of energy biomass. As short-rotation woody crops, the genus Paulownia has already attracted growing attention. These trees are used to produce biomass and reduce the carbon dioxide concentration in the atmosphere. Most projects for biomass production, however, may affect soil properties and status. For this reason, it is important to know the effects of Paulownia plantations on the microbiological properties of the soils on agricultural areas in Poland. This article provides information on plant parasitic nematodes inhabiting the root zone of Paulownia tomentosa L. in Poland. The only report of Meloidogyne hapla Chitwood, 1949 shows the potential pathogenicity of the root-knot nematodes. Furthermore, nothing is known about plant parasitic nematodes inhabiting the root zone of Paulownia tomentosa L.in Poland. Determining the trophic group of plant parasitic nematodes was undertaken by a process of centrifugation. Measurements showed a decrease in the population reproduction factor (Pf/Pi) which reached a value of 0.1. Paulownia tomentosa L. taken from seven different locations in Poland revealed the presence of M. hapla.
