ABSTRACT

The forest is generally recognized as a major environmental and stabilizing factor in the country. Its stability is currently significantly influenced by changing climatic conditions. They are an important factor in a determining species composition of forest ecosystems, as well as ecophysiological and production processes directly linked to the overall performance and stability of forest stands. Dry summer months and warmer winters with negative anthropogenic activities actually create more favorable conditions for the extreme plights, including increasing risk of forest fires.
In the new situation where there is a need to adapt to climate changes while mitigating the negative impacts opens up the question of revision of prior-art procedures and methods of integrated forest protection.
Contribution based on practical knowledge and implemented measures on calamity territory of Slovakia (High and Low Tatras) describes the design of fire prevention measures aimed at eliminating the successful establishment and spread of forest fires.
