Abstract: - A brief review of forest and agriculture policies in Romania addressing woodpastures. Although the term “wood-pasture” has been used in forest legislation only after 1990, recommendations regarding the management of wood vegetation on pastures were introduced in forest and agriculture technical regulations during the communist period. Since then, successive forest regulations have shown an increasing interest in preserving trees on wood-pastures both for economic and environmental reasons, while agriculture policies have recognized their importance for water and soil protection. Still, the presence of trees and bushes on agricultural land has been continuously interpreted as a sign of agricultural abandonment, thus their removal has been encouraged. The regulations have become more complex especially since 2007, with Romania’s accession to the European Union and the application of the Common Agricultural Policy, which conditions the granting of agricultural subsidies to strict agro-environmental rules.

Key words: wood-pastures in Romania, forest policy, agricultural policy, Common Agricultural Policy
