About Forest Maps

The forest maps were instituted by Law 2664/1998 (Government Gazette 275 / A / 3-12-1998). They are maps showing which part of the land was in 1945 and still is designated as forest or grassland or other (non-forest) or a combination of the above.

The Forest Map dictates for each area a character that is complex e.g. AA where D depicts the historical state of the land in 1945 (forest) and A the recent state of the land in 2007-2009 (other form – non-forest).

On the Forest map the signs displayed are:

  • Forest areas designated "ΔΔ" (always forest area), "ΑΔ" (wooded area of οther form) and "ΔΑ" (sown forest area).
  • Grasslands designated "XX" (always grassland), "ΧΑ" (grassland) and "ΑΧ" (abandoned area).
  • Non-forest land with "AA" character (always of other form)
  • Areas designated by acts of the Forestry Office or the competent Forestry Department. These take the form of "ΠΑ" (non-forestry act), "ΠΧ" (grassland act) and "ΠΔ" (forestry act).
  • Land for reforestation, which has been designated as "AN" (land for reforestation).

The publication of the Forest Charter is its first public disclosure to inform the citizens of the nature of their land, so that it can be judged and also corrected by the tribunals, following objections from anyone concerned. It is the only opportunity for any natural or legal person with a legitimate interest to uphold the rights of the land they own and to prove on scientific grounds that the land owned, is owned and has never been designated forest if so. The means given to him by law is to object. For areas of the Forest Charter for which no objection will be raised, immediate approval and ratification will be made as forest land.

Objection to the Forest Charter

The objection is the only means by which any natural or legal subject facing a legitimate interest can propose substantive changes to the designated areas of the Forest Map.

The content of an objection must state reasons solely for questioning the nature or form of the areas shown on the Forest Charter. In particular, an objection may be raised either because an area has been designated as a forest (while it is not) or, conversely, because an area has been omitted as a forest (while it is).

The steps that need to be taken from the posting to the objection appear in a simple and illustrative way in the brochure.
