Ensuring the way of managing the forest stock, the public property of the state, administered by RNP Romsilva, in compliance with the forestry regime.


  • the study of the resort and the forest vegetation;
  • establishing the social-economic and ecological objectives of forests;
  • establishing management goals defined by the structural characteristics of the stands;
  • establishing forest feasibility and developing harvest and culture plans;
  • the approximation of the structure of the real production stock to a model structure corresponding to the functions assigned to the stands. This approach is done gradually, from one arrangement to another, analyzing, at the expiration of the period of application of the arrangement, the influence of the measures proposed to the stands;
  • ensuring the continuous harvesting of the main products as well as the proper management and development of the stands by performing the related care works;
  • substantiating decisions regarding forest management;
  • sustainable management of the forest heritage and related elements (nurseries, autoforestry road network, afforestation works);
  • maintaining and improving the condition of the habitats in the protected natural areas by implementing the forest management measures provided for in the Management Plans of the protected natural areas.
