GET READY IN TIME FOR AN OBJECTION THAT MAY NEED TO BE DONE. The time frame of 45 days (65 for residents abroad) for submitting objections is very small and the possibility of services for publishing aerial photographs of older years, where you can document – substantiate your objection, is limited.


Is it important to object?

This is probably the last chance you have to clear your forest property. After this deadline you can no longer object and no extension period is provided.

You can see here the posting of the Forest Map

The objections – objections concern exclusively the questioning of the forest character of the forest areas appearing on the map. Those who have a legal interest (paying the objection fee), can file their objection electronically. Our office in collaboration with a forester due to his specialization in issues of photo interpretation and location of properties in aerial photographs of the past, can actually help in such objections, since the material of aerial photographs is perhaps the only essential element that can prove the possible “Non-forest” character of the area in question.

Always close to you with this specialized website in Cadastral matters, we try to help the citizens as mechanical advisors in the matters of the National Cadastre.


The deadline for submitting the objection, together with the necessary supporting documents that will justify and substantiate the objection, is set at forty-five days and starts from the last publication.

The objections – objections are examined within four months from the expiration of the deadline for their submission by a three-member committee formed by a decision of the General Secretary of the relevant Region.
Once ratified, the forest charter becomes final and has full probative value in any administrative or judicial authority.

With orthophoto maps for the critical year of 1945, we can immediately inform you about the character and type of vegetation that your property showed in 1945.
Of course this is an important first element that can be checked. Aerial photographs from 1938 and 1960, as well as more recent years, are also being considered for a complete overview of the property. Then we proceed to the preparation of a documented photo-interpretation study with orthophoto maps and a comparative representation of the area over time in order to provide indisputable proof of the use of the area under study.
