The State Forests are more than 90 years old already. Despite historical turns and changes the organization operates until today, combining tradition with modernity.
The organization of the State Forests, perfected for decades, is based on the principle of self-financing. As a result, the State Forests do not benefit from the taxpayers' money. Forest units operate at the national, regional and local levels. They employ a total of almost 25 thousand people.
The State Forests is the largest organisation in the European Union managing forests which belong to the State Treasury. We manage almost one third of Poland’s territory considered particularly valuable as it is overgrown by forests. What is more important this part is systematically increasing thanks to the foresters’ effort.
