Forest protection is a topic that covers agents causing damage to forests and the prevention of this damage. Sometimes these factors (e.g. wildfires) may also threaten properties and human life.
Protection from various diseases means that in forest management we should not create conditions favouring the spread of pests and diseases. The potential risk of introducing pests and diseases should be taken into account when we make decision about the type of regeneration, soil preparation, and species composition, etc. The health condition of growing stock can be affected by stand treatment methods (e.g. thinning, pruning, drainage of soil), working methods and timing of actions.
