More than half of Luxembourg's forests are owned privately. And the legal skills of private owners are clearly much less advanced than those of state agencies. Therefore, more and more foresters complain about the lack of transparency of regulations and requirements, making them difficult to comply with and enforce.
The non-profit organization Luxembourg Private Forest supports the opinion that the Ministry should be more active in communicating with people. Doing so would be productive both in terms of legislation and in terms of forest protection, the subject of much recent public discussion.
It is important to understand that the term "protection" does not necessarily imply a complete ban on logging and other activities.
