The forestry’s that make the subject of this study are from different categories, private forestryand state forestry. Their main activity is the production of wood mass that is harvested annually dependingon possibilities. It is different in the case of the two studied forestry’s because of the average age of thespecies. The market, the driving agent of economy, has a major impact on the decisions taken byeconomic agents regarding the assignment of resources, investments, the ways they are used in order to becompetitive. The forests, by the two functions they have, protection and socio-economic protection,represents a national treasure, regardless of the owner. The harvesting and exploitation is performed byeconomic agents that already exist in the forestry after participating in auctions. The contracted companiesare under pressure to negotiate with wood mass suppliers (forestry, which set access to resources) andclients (wood processing companies, which set access to the market) (Bouriaud et al., 2011). This way, inthe case of the studied forestry's, both private and state forestry`s, the access to resources (wood mass) ismade after participating at an auction organized. The economic agents that operate inside of the forestry'sprocess about 8000-20000 m3 per year. The difference between the two forestry`s is given by the amountof wood mass auctioned for each batch, as well as the price offered per cubic meter of wood during theauction.
