Investigations carried out during 2000-2012, at the level of forestry fund owned by Casimcea Forestry District, which have a surface of around 7,929 ha, shown that this one offers special conditions for development of beekeeping activities, having a honey-bearing potential of around 675,625 kg. This potential is given mainly by the forestry species with honey-bearing features, such as linden and acacia, which have a share in the forest structure of 13.06% (1,035.94 ha), respectively 11.39% (903.33 ha). Therefore, in pastoral, in the area could be brought 16,259 bee families to capitalize harvesting at acacia, at which the estimated potential is around 301,110 kg (44.57% from the total potential of the forests), respectively 11,395 bee families during linden harvesting, where, estimative, the potential is around 276,330 kg (40,9% from honey-bearing potential of the forestry district).
