Spanish Forestry Law


The forest owner can make use of any product, always according to the law (sustainability) and not limiting the social use. The harvesting of wild fruits and mushrooms by a third party in a private land is possible when the forest owner provides authorisation or when it is not specifically prohibited by adequate signals. In this last case, the harvesting has to be done under the concept of “usus inocui” (harmless use). A license scheme can be put upon mushroom collection when i) the species or the ecosystem balance are at risk or ii) recollection exceeds the quantities fixed by the forestry administration.
