Institutions associated with forestry
Forests available for wood supply are all forests outside national parks that are accessible and that are not subject to further substantial legal or natural harvesting restrictions.
Forests available for wood supply include forests with multiple functions, such as e.g. soil protection, avalanche protection or recreation where harvesting can still take place based on adequate management.
Considering ownership and protection by national park four different management regimes exist in Montenegro:
- Management of the public forests outside National Parks by the Forest Administration
- Management of private forests outside National Parks by private forest owners supported by the Forest Administration
- Management of the public forests inside National Parks by the National Park Administration
- Management of private forests inside National Parks by private forest owners supported by the National Park Administration
