Abstract

The climate changes produced in recent years have brought to the foreground the importance of establishing forest shelterbelts in Romania together with the enlargement of the already existing ones, with the main role to protect the localities against adverse natural phenomena (soil erosion, snow drifting, flooding, etc.). The need for shelterbelts, which was acknowledged by Ion Ionescu de la Brad even since 1860, has been the subject of the decision-makers’ debates, in order to identify, on the basis of the current situation, the necessary measures and financial resources to establish protective forest belts. Starting from these considerations, the present approach intends to investigate the current regulatory framework and the situation of protective forest belts in the component counties of the region South–Muntenia, corroborated with the possible intervention measures in this area.
