Hungary

Forests cover nearly one quarter of Hungary’s land area, almost 80% of which are plantations. Forest cover has increased at an annual rate of 0.5% over the period 1990 to 2015 (FAO, 2015).

Illegal logging is not a significant problem in the country. As an EU Member State, Hungary is required to implement the EU Timber Regulation, which came into force in March 2013.
