Portuguese resin tapping legislation

In order to ensure the sustainability of the exploitation of pine resin and to guarantee that it is guided by good management practices – promoting the vitality of pine forests and forest protection practices, contributing with relevant annual revenues – it was considered necessary, in Portugal, to define a legal regime, simplifying and concentrating all the rules in a single legal document. This legislation is an essential knowledge tool for authorities and economic agents, focusing on the production, exploitation and dynamics of resin from the forest to the industrial processing unit.
