We reviewed and categorized the organizational reforms of state forest managements in Germany. In addition to the review of the current management organizational forms, we captured the characteristics of the two new organizational forms, namely the Landesbetrieb (State Corporation, literally translated) and the Anstalt des öffentli-chen Rechts (Institution under Public Law, literally translated). As the result, (1) organizational changes since 2000 starting from limited number of states have expanded to overall states with accounting system similar to private enterprises, (2) general structural reforms at the states are accountable for such changes, (3) the new forms are either Landesbetrieb and the Anstalt des öffentlichen Rechts and none of the states chose to completely privatize, and (4) the organizational forms were not linked with adoption of the Einheitsforstverwaltung (Unified Forest Administration, literally translated).
