Forest first afforestation - apply for permission

Service Description

Your application as a landowner for approval of initial afforestation will be reviewed by the lower forestry authority.

The lower forestry authority decides on your application in consultation with the lower nature conservation authority, the upper agricultural authority, the land consolidation authority and, for areas of five hectares or more, the upper state planning authority.

Approval for initial afforestation may be granted subject to conditions.

Initial afforestation does not require approval if afforestation has been legally established for the area on the basis of other public-law regulations and the lower forestry authority was involved in the procedure.
