Estonia has one of the oldest forest management systems in the world. Starting more than 400 years ago, in the early 1600`s, Estonia established a no-tree-cutting policy in the border zone along the Baltic Sea to protect the coastal environment. From this early beginning, successful forest management has been improved, changed with the times and developed into one of the most effective and successful forest management systems in the world.
