The purpose of comparative examination of the Republic of Slovenia and the Republic of Finland laws is to emphasize the various options of resolving the inadequate forest ownership structure problem. With analysis of administrativeprocedures in forest holdings trade we establish in what extent pre-rights are effecting on change in forest ownership structure. Graduation thesis provides an overview of legislation and government documents, related to the implementation of forest policies in field of forest ownership structure in both countries. It also provides the analysis of administrative procedures in forest holdings trade in two administrative units in Slovenia. Slovenian and Finnish approach of resolving the inadequate ownership structureproblem are different, although both strive to achieve similar goals.The analysis notes that supply and demand for forest properties in the area of our analysis is insufficient. Slovenian land concentration orientated policy failure should be corrected with new, additional restrictions on forestholdings trade. Finland has positive experience with implementation of the Act on the Right to Acquire Farm Land and Forest Land, which had been in force until 1997.
