This tag is a unique identifier of a Polish administrative forest unit. It contains all identifiers from the top level of hierarchy down to unit’s level (although in imported data it is common to fill lower hierarchy levels with spaces, see this mailing list message), separated with  hyphens. Unit’s level identifier is also used in ref=*.

The same identifier is used within  System Informatyczny Lasów Państwowych[1].

The hierarchy[1]

  1. Regionalna Dyrekcja Lasów Państwowych
  2.  nadleśnictwo
  3.  obręb
  4.  leśnictwo
  5.  oddział
  6.  pododdział and  wydzielenie

Identifiers of those hierarchy levels are joined with hyphens to form this tag’s value. The last level also contains a hyphen.


  1. relation 8556836 (example of oddział)
