It's a little bit weird in our country since we have something called "allemansrätten and strandskydd".
Allemansrätten = the right for anyone to walk around on anyones land basicly and you can't really fence it off. You are not allowed to walk around in someones garden though. You are allowed to pick wild berries etc as long as it's in a none commercial way.
Strandskydd = protection against people who want to build to close to lakes/water which would mean that not everyone could use them.
You can't really own a lake but if you control all land around it you could "wrongly" say that you own the lake though you don't. The only lake you can own is if you make one yourself.
I meant that it was easier to buy forrestland here than for example farmland because you need to buy whole farmlands at once and not small pieces. They don't want the farmland split up since it would mean less productive farming... thats the idea at least.
I love Poland. Usually go and visit the area of Poznan once in awhile to stock up on certain chemicals. My mother has a lot of friends from Poland since she spent a lot of time playin handball there when she was young.
