The Hőgyész Forestry of Gyulaj Co practices professional forest management on ~ 5.300 hectare (~13.100 acres) woodlands. The forestry's area is located in the south-eastern part of Tolna county. The forestry has a really varied picture as the precipitation distribution is really varied. This area has the best features and site factors for the successful forest management. As the result of the global warming and climate change we expect failure of the site factors in the future as well as the decline of land area of the beech, sessile oak and mixed hornbeam- oak stands.
