Who can use the forest?

Forest use

Plots of the State Forestry Fund can be used by legal entities and individuals.

A fee is paid for using the forest. The amount of payments and the procedure for their collection are determined by the Cabinet of Ministers of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

Forest use can be permanent or temporary.

Forestry enterprises, institutions and organizations whose lands of the Forest Fund have been transferred to permanent ownership are permanent users of the forest.

Temporary forest use can be short-term - up to three years and long-term - up to ten years.

The right to use the forest is granted to legal entities and individuals, unless otherwise provided by law, by state forestry bodies or by enterprises, institutions and organizations authorized by them.

Forest use is allowed on the basis of a special permission - logging or forest ticket. Forest users have the right to use the plots of the state forest fund only for the types of forest use provided for in special permits.
