Forests cover 2.7 million hectares of Croatia's land

Forests cover 47% of Croatian land and this space is not decreasing, the state-run forest management company "Hrvatske Sume" said in a press release, issued on the occasion of the International Day of Forests, observed on 21 March.

Croatia does not conduct deforestation, the company boasts, adding that the forest management is systematic and in accordance with long-term plans. 

Forests are on 2,688,687 hectares, which is 47% of Croatia's land. The state ownership of those resources is 78% and private 22%.

In Croatia, as much as 95% of forests have natural structure, and interventions are done only when natural regeneration is not possible, for instance after fires or due to sanitary logging.
