The article presents the results of a study of the characteristics of plant growth and development in zones with different anthropogenic load. A visual assessment of the vital state of woody plants was carried out. Various monitoring zones of Nukus differ in the levels of heavy metals. It was found that the soil cover of the studied areas contains about 30 names of heavy metals (Cd, Cr, Hg, Pb, Jn, Mn, Ni, Co, etc.). Seven of them (Cd, As, Hg, Cr, Ni, Jn, Co) have the greatest anthropogenic impact. High pollution of soils with heavy metals is of a local nature. It is shown that different plant species differ in their ability to accumulate heavy metals.
