In order to ensure a consistent approach, we will briefly present the main forest laws adopted and applied in Romania, starting with the nineteenth century.The legal approach to the concept of forest protection implies presenting all the legal means offered to the individualsthat are engaged in forest related social interactions with the purpose of protecting the social values that are closely connected to this good.The legal forestry mechanisms that ensure that these extremely important goods are lawfully protected have an essential role among forest protection instruments.The legal regulations that impact the forest fund include both the forest codes adopted in Romania and all the legal regulations relevant to the forest protection field and contained in numerous other normative acts. The main methods used in tackling this subject were: the logical method, the historical method and the comparative method. The current study attempts to outline evolution of the Romanian legislator’s concern to regulate the forest social relations and to establish the basic rules of development, conservation and sustainable management of the Romanian forests.
