Pro Silva Bohemica was founded in 1995 as a branch office of the Czech Forest Society, o.s. (CLS) with nationwide competence. From 1.1.2014, in accordance with the new Civil Code, Pro Silva Bohemica is a subsidiary company of the Czech Forestry Society. The new full name is therefore “Pro Silva Bohemica, a subsidiary company of the Czech Forest Society”.

The purpose of Pro Silva Bohemica is to seek and strive for the greatest possible use of natural processes in the forest to achieve the economic goals or benefits expected by the owner and required of the community. In practice, this means searching for and verifying ways to nature close to forest growing, where a significant  part of the resulting economic yield is adequate minimization of forestry costs. For a more detailed and comprehensive overview of program issues and goals for the Pro Silva, see the Program Documents section.

Pro Silva Bohemica has been a full member of Pro Silva Europe, founded in 1989 at a constituent meeting in Slovenia.
