The history of the path the forest laws have followed is an interesting topic and the most important issues these laws have regulated in different periods, show the trend and the policies being followed, the importance the forestry sector had for the society and the economy and its impact on the environment. This research paper is based on document analysis and literature review of all the laws on forests issued in Albania starting from 1923 to 2007. The analysis is focused on the evolution of the law objectives and the regulation intensity of different forest laws. Laws objectives have been identified and a comparative analysis of the main elements addressed in these laws and of complementary official documents was made. In order to understand how these laws have evolved and what have been the social challenges of each period, the laws elements addressed are comparatively analyzed on the importance they played on the political, social and economic changes that occurred in the forestry sector at each period of time taken into consideration.
