Description: Political and administrative limitations are real factors for a Management System for National Forest in Brazil, but some actions needs to be achieve. The concession system is economically feasible to create and manage National Forest in Atlantic area for sustainable timber production under actual wood world market condition. Brazil National Forest needs to be protected under correct management system. Our proposal is that a Concession System be implemented immediately for all Forest area in Atlantic basin as well as creating new areas for timber production to protect and multiply Atlantic Forest Species.
