Abstract


The paper presents the results obtained by means of survey of stakeholders in Teteven Municipality, Bulgaria, from the viewpoint of use of forests and forest recourses. The main ecosystem services divided into wood products (timber production, fuel wood and biomass), supporting services (biodiversity maintenance, water quality, tourism, hunting and recreation), and non-wood forest products relevant for the object of the present research are analysed. The conflicts of interests are identified considering stakeholders united into groups of “environmentalists”, “entrepreneurs”, “stewards” and “citizens”.
