The University of Forestry is the only university in Bulgaria providing training of specialists in the field of Forestry, Wood Technology and Furniture Production, Engineering Design of Furniture and Landscape Architecture. The university also provides training of specialists in Ecology and Environmental Protection, Veterinary Medicine, Agronomy, Plant Protection and Management. The University is a leading training and research centre in the field of management and sustainable use of natural resources. The legal foundation of higher forestry education in Bulgaria was laid on January 28, 1925, when the Academic Council of the Sofia University decided to set up a Department of Forestry at the Agronomy Faculty of the university. That decision was preceded by a long-standing struggle of Bulgarian foresters against the plundering and destruction of forests after the 1878 Liberation from Turkish rule. A lot of opinions and proposals appeared in the specialised newspapers and magazines, as well as in the daily press, regarding both the management of forests and their use and the role of the forest ranger and his or her professional training, especially after the enforcement of Forest Acts from 1883, 1889, 1897, 1904 and 1922. However, only after the graduation of Bulgarian young people from forestry universities abroad (mainly in the Check Republic, Germany and France) and their appointment to administrative positions in forest management units, did a truly purposeful and well-founded protection of the Bulgarian forest begin.
