Pro Silva Hungaria

THE NATURE - better than anything and everyone, if we know how to follow it.

PRO SILVA is a European Alliance of Foresters, based on natural processes, founded in 1989 in Slovenia. Pro Silva Hungaria is the Hungarian organization of foresters supporting natural processes based on natural processes.


Due to the domination of clearcuts in Hungary, Hungarian forestry became a kind of cuckoo cake for the Pro Silva start-up team - through the individual membership of Béla Varga, who took part in the inaugural meeting.
Fortunately, the National Forestry Association quickly recognized the situation and entered the European Alliance among the earliest as its national group. Thanks to its enthusiastic members, the Pro Silva Working Group, established in the Forestry Department, has been doing excellent work, of course, for the first time in ten years, with great traditions (Switzerland, Slovenia, Germany, France, Czech Republic, etc.).

New Team

The new team, using almost all the traditional and modern means of communication, has been trying to overcome the disadvantage of the Hungarian forestry with the almost exclusive application of the cutting mode. Editing, publishing and distributing books, posters, other publications, organizing conferences, study tours, setting up educational trails, presenting field exercises and trainings, building a network of sample and demonstration areas, and taking up more and more jobs through direct professional support for work.
