The article presents a study that deals with the efforts of the Romanian government to conserve and reconstruct oak forests in the country. It highlights the silvicultural intervention undertaken by the government to stop the decline and to preserve the forests. Initiated by the State Forest Service, the actions aimed at the reduction of cutting volumes and preservation of oak stands as protected forests or reserves, the practice of more sophisticated silvicultural systems to assure natural regeneration, and the return of coppices to former high forests.
