Ministry worried about illegal logging

THE AGRICULTURE Ministry is worried about illegal logging and has proposed stricter punishment and control measures.

NGOs estimate that about 2 million cubic meters of wood is illegally logged annually, while the ministry's estimate is at about half of that amount. The agriculture ministry admits that some forestry employees are also involved in the crimes.

The ministry's spokesperson, Katarína Czajlíková, said to the Slovak daily SME that the ministry had already introduced a more serious system for the registration and marking of wood and that more security patrols were overseeing the forests. Slovakia has just over two million hectares of forests.
