Paper Abstract

The satisfaction of continuous leisure demand in suburban forest requires a proper management of space so as on the one hand to provide better services to visitors and on the other hand to protect against excessive and improper use by guests. In the present study we investigated and analyzed the current situation of the suburban forests of Drama, Limni and Elassona and proposed the appropriate future management. The views of residents are reflected in primary research using a questionnaire (personal interview). The results focus, regardless of the region, to the multiple roles played by suburban forests for urban and suburban areas. The integration of suburban forests and especially of all the urban green as key elements of spatial planning and urban reconstruction of large and small urban centers, are the means that will create favorable conditions for future upgrading of suburban forests in order to sufficiently accomplish a modern triple role; productive, ecological and social.
