Land use in the specific region in the properties of Zastena includes forest use, agricultural use, settlements and infrastructural use. Agricultural land use has grown from the settlement in the 18th century until the second half of the 20th century. After that time the abandonment of agricultural land has infected agricultural use to stagnate. The overgrowing has started and in someplaces it is still present today. Factors such as the First World War and the development of Alpine dairy farming also had an important role in the landscape changing. As for forestry branch, intensive logging and timber sales had the major influence on landscape changing in the past. Both agricultural and forestry branch has had a significant impact on the provision of income to the population in this specific area.

Nowadays, besides the main branch in this area - agriculture, the importance of forestry branch is increasing and is also a good alternative for the future in this area due to the favorable forest conditions.
