This paper deals with basic terms related to forestry contractors. Different expressions used for forest contractors in Croatian and English are presented, the terms entrepreneur and entrepreneurship are defined and the basic characteristics of the actual forestry contractors are shown in the paper. The English expression ‘forestry contractor’ is considered the most suitable since it denotes the person who contracts the performance of forestry services. Professional programmes of recognition of forestry contractors are considered and their significance is pointed out in regulating the state and relationship of forestry services on the market as well as in achieving the status of reliable and responsible contractors. Registration, certification and licensing are presented as three main procedures for professional and business recognition of forestry contractors. Only licensing and licence are considered as the guarantee of professional and high-quality performance of forestry services. Licence can be withdrawn if the contractor permanently fails to meet the set qualification requirements or business criteria. Incentives are given for establishing a model, which would include the confirmation of qualification requirements and operating competence of the contractor as well as encourage contracting services only with authorised and licensed contractors. Professional and timely performance of services is expected to be a sufficient guarantee for forest owners to accept this model.
