THE MOST IMPORTANT NON-WOOD FOREST PRODUCTS FROM ARGEŞ COUNTY

Journal Title: Current Trends in Natural Sciences - Year 2017, Vol 6, Issue 11

Abstract

Argeş is one of the counties from Romania with the highest potential in terms of harvesting and commercialization of non-wood forest products (NWFPs). Across the county, the distribution of NWFPs in not uniform, being concentrated in north. The goal of this study was to highlight the most important NWFPs from Argeş County. Therefore, four categories of NWFPs (i.e. Mushrooms, Tree products, Understory plants and Animal origin) were selected and ten criteria were used. The Analytic Hierarchy Process (AHP) was used in order to systematically evaluate both quantitative and qualitative criteria and to assess the performance of selected alternatives (i.e. NWFPs) by means of pairwise comparisons. The analyses were carried out with Expert Choice Desktop software. Red deer and wild boar were the most promising NWFPs, while raspberries were the less promising. In the perspective of sustainable development, future integrated management plans should take also into consideration the potential of these specific categories of forest products.
