THE CONSOLIDATION OF FOREST TERRITORIES AS A TOOL TO IMPROVE THEIR MANAGEMENT
Keywords:forest land, consolidation, forest management
Land consolidation in forest areas is a problem that has been prevalent in Bulgaria in recent years. This is a problem in all forests where ownership is distributed between the State, municipalities and private owners. Timber harvesting and exportation is much easier and cheaper when access is easier. This article summarizes the main directions of forest land consolidation, highlighting the leading understanding in scientific research to date. The purpose of the study is to provide some basic steps related to forest territory consolidation that allow to determine its economic effectiveness. The current paper is the first step in developing an optimization model to support the forestry units in Bulgaria and in other countries which have undertaken such a difficult task.
