Szalafő Forest Reserve (Vasi-Hegyhát)
core area: 12.0 ha; buffer zone: 97.0 ha; total area: 109 ha

"In the quite small core area remained from the extensive farming, which was a shifting cultivation of forest-arable land previously characteristic of the region, considerable natural tree species conversion has happened in the last decades. These dynamics can be studied well – as a consequence of a former detailed survey."
