Abstract

Forest certification can be in general perceived as a market stimulation and support of sustainability of forest lands and forest economy.

These are expens-es and real consumer buying behavior on one hand and support of environmental management, prevention of trade with illegally harvested timber and preservation and protection of the countryside and nature, on the other hand. Given these facts, the aim of the paper is to present the expert knowledge and opinions concerning economic benefits and limitations of voluntary forest certification to producers and customers of wooden products.
