Legal Criteria (Austria) for Energy Woods
You should consider distances from bordering properties. The minimal distances are stipulated by provincial legislation. 3 to maximum 10 m are recommended as turning circles.
The fast-rotation farm should be timely registered (within 10 years upon arrangement thereof) with a community or a district authority and harvested in accordance with §1(5) of the Forest Act (Forstgesetz). Fast-rotation areas are deemed to be agricultural areas provided that the crop was not planted on forest floor and is registered as such with BH within 10 years upon planting. Energy wood should be first harvested within at most 30 years, otherwise the area will be deemed to be a forest.
Please check the applicable provincial acts before ordering!
