ABSTRACT
Forestry, due to its specifics, is highly affected by special conditions resulting from the nature of production processes as well as from the external impacts, including legal statutes. The main objective of the Slovak forest policy, which is based on the EU Forestry Strategy, is to provide sustainable multifunctional forest management. The multifunctional forest management shall harmonize fulfilment of different forest functions, such as production, ecological and environmental functions. In order to secure such management, it is necessary to create suitable economic conditions. This paper analyses the system of support of multifunctional forest management in the Slovak Republic, using the set of legal provisions together with the direct financial support at the national as well as international level. Considering legal provisions, the measures for decreasing the tax burden of forest enterprises are analysed. Then, the principles of direct financial support from the SR state budget as well as from the EU sources are described. To conclude, it is possible to state that the Slovak Republic does not dispose of sufficient economic environment in order to provide fulfilment of all forest functions at the appropriate level.

Keywords: multifunctional forest management, forest enterprises, financing, economic tools
