Abstract: Res:O estudo do regime jurídico florestal é feito neste artigo de forma plural, visando a discussão dos seus principais aspectos, recorrentemente aventados nos circuitos especializados e nos meios de comunicação social, mas que não têm, em idêntica medida, transpirado para a doutrina nacional. Apontam-se, assim, as características específicas que o bem jurídico florestal reveste e que determinam a necessidade de uma sua abordagem integrada e debate-se o enquadramento jurídico que lhe é deferido, centrando a análise nos níveis internacional, comunitário e nacional de relevância desta questão.
Res:In this article, the study of the legal regime pertaining to forests is done in a plural manner and seeks to discus the main aspects that are recurrently stressed in the specialised circuits and media but have not, in a broad manner, been treated by the national doctrine. In the beginning, specific characteristics pertaining to the forest legal regime are underlined. These characteristics determine the necessity of an integrated approach. In this manner, one stresses the diversity, the multi-functionality and the trans-national significance of this renewable resource and, one alerts, in the final part, to the adverse effects that the incomprehension of this resource allows or potentiates. In particular, one refers to the question of forest fires which recently occurred in our country with particular intensity and seriousness and which need a full answer. Secondly, one discusses the legal framework given to this resource. The analysis is centred on the main levels of relevance of this question: international, community, and national (and within the latter, the regional and local). One also notes how international and community law has served to foster an adequate consideration of the status and the legal regime of this natural resource, namely through the launching of discussion forums, sustaining international compromises, establishing monitoring and evaluation mechanisms and making financial aid and incentives available. At the national level, the visibility of this question, many times attained due to the worst reasons, has originated the approval of substantive and successive legal and regulatory dispositions as well as organic restructurings that have only complicated the protection of this legal good. Finally, the legal soundness of some of the instruments foreseen, namely the obligation to elaborate Regional Forest Planning Plans, is hampered by the absence of the practical fulfilment of these plans. This allows for the maintenance of a reactive logic, instead of the creation of a forest policy based on the vectors of precaution and prevention and the basic guiding concept of a sustainable forest management.
