Summary/Abstract: The paper analyses important aspects of the new 2011 Forests Act of Bulgaria which was adopted to replace the previous Forests Act of 1977, which provisions were abusively used to carry out corruption transactions with forests and lands situated within forests. Such abusive practices caused huge damages to the state and municipal property over those forests and lands. The subject-matter under consideration is of significance, since the Forests Act has undoubtedly the important mission to protect forests and forest territories which constitute important part of Bulgaria’s national treasure.
