EU Legislation about the forests and forests related policies
EU forests and forest related policies
"Forests play a key role in protecting European ecosystems and biodiversity. They are also central in trapping carbon which would otherwise be released in the atmosphere and thus aggravating climate change. The serious impacts of fires on forests have led decision makers to recognise that prevention at European level is one of the most efficient ways to face these threats. The European Union has brought in a series of measures to support forests and forestry. Various Directorates-General (DGs) at the European Commission are involved in the development and monitoring of measures in the field of information, prevention, fire fighting and restoration of burned surfaces" (see http://ec.europa.eu/environment/forests/index_en.htm).
