Sustainability and Environmental friendly management are meanings which were known since the beginning of ages; but were established by the UNEP in 1972 throughout the celebration of the World Environment Day (WED) every year on 5 June; in order to raise global awareness to take positive environmental action to protect nature and the planet Earth. The aim of this paper is to give a chronological series of changes at the unique place of Ancient Olympia, in order to show how nature was before and after the wild fire of Peloponnese at Southern Greece. As foresters and environmentalists we proposed some environmental friendly measures as a systematic treatment of the areas’ sustainable management after a wild fire. The post-fire management of Kronius hill and a new plantation based on the existing species with the synergy of natural reforestation gave marvelous solutions after a decade. A series of technical works and protective measures against erosion are suggested in order to achieve the effective development of the area.
