Numerical research results of deciduous tree ignition by cloud-to-ground lightning discharge are presented. The problem is solved in one-dimensional statement in cylindrical system of coordinates. The typical range of influence parameters of positive and negative cloud-to-ground lightning discharges is considered. Ignition conditions for deciduous tree are established.
