Degradation of natural environment in the Sudetes mountains manifested, among others, by the destruction of woodlands leads to some secondary processes, such as deformations of rocky blocks, which considered most dangerous because of falling rocks down to the roads. Such phenomena can be prevented provided that the mechanisms generating their development will be known. A significant role in achieving this goal is attributed to geodetic surveys which enable monitoring of deformation processes in time and space.
