For a long time now, utilisation of the forest’s ecosystems has constituted the basis of the economy of the regions of the Alpine range. The socio-economic changes of the last few decades, however, have altered the traditional relationship between man and forest, a change in values reflected in the different order of priority expressed by the population of today with regard to forests. In the light of international literature, this work illustrates the evolution of the values of the forest in relation to the changes in society. It highlights the prevailing lack of a clear perception on the part of the public agencies, whose task it is to safeguard and manage the mountain ecosystems, of the entire spectrum of values and meanings attributed to the forest. An analysis of the phenomenon, with particular reference to the Alpine area, is proposed, underlining possible causes and consequences.
