The inspiration is called unesco: from world heritage to special forestry sites in slovakia
Mičovský, Ján
Medieval devastation of forests led to the emergence of a forest profession. Today, the importance of this profession is enhanced by climate change. Despite this, foresters are often exposed to misunderstanding. Therefore, it is necessary to talk not only about the values of the forest, but also about the value of forestry work. One possibility is to offer an unconventional view of landscape elements created in connection with forestry. We can include these under the concept of natural, technical or building monuments. Reservations, transport systems, works of art, arboretum..., all this reveals the unsuspected breadth of forestry. These works not only document the ability of foresters to contribute to the creation and protection of the landscape, but are often also a contribution to the appreciation of its beauty. The system of declaring the world's natural and cultural heritage, which has been applied by UNESCO since 1972, offered inspiration in the attempt to use these values in presenting forestry. Its analogy in the conditions of Slovak forestry became the system of declaring "special forestry sites". This system, as an original way of protecting forestry history, has been implemented since 2007 by the state enterprise Lesy SR. So far, 58 special forestry sites have been declared. The guarantor of the system is the Forestry and Timber Museum in Zvolen. The idea grew into a permanent project, in which museum experts find not only an educational and popularizing effect, but also a tool for deepening forestry historical research. The most important part of this system is the increased protection, maintenance and often costly reconstruction of landscape monuments.
