Management principles

The royal hammer is used to mark trees for felling

Although managed by the same team with a shared budget, a distinction should be made between the forest and the arboretum management. The forest management is multifunctional: It incorporates nature conservation schemes, public recreation, and timber yield management while guaranteeing a sustainable balance. The arboretum management, on the other hand, primarily focuses on preserving the collection and the landscape, although the physical environment and the biological community of the place ​​are also taken into account when possible and appropriate. The preservation of the forest domain is guaranteed by the founding provisions of the Royal Donation, and the area is included in almost all existing local and European nature and heritage protection measures.
