    This paper describes the structure of the method of life cycle assessment, with special focus on products in forestry. Some examples taken from foreign studies show the basic dilemmas and faults when using this method in forest management. We shall define the problem of proving ecological suitability, anddescribe the differences between forest certification and eco-labelling. Moreover, we shall explain the significance of ISO 14000 standards.
