The NWFPs (non-wood forest products) sector is of the crucial importance to the Polish households but its social and economic role is varied and depends on place of residence. For the inhabitants of villages and small towns forests are
the place of working and NWFPs sale provides an additional fnancial resource. City-dwellers do not treat NWFPs
as a source of income but rather as an element of recreation and they use these products mainly for their own needs.
Some remarks for the developing of this sector in Poland were given in this paper.
