In Slovakia, entire forests, including those in the national parks, are quickly disappearing because of logging. Deciduous trees and conifers are, in large numbers, replaced by monocultures and development projects, while our cities keep suffocating due to smog and lack of greenery.
On the other hand, we are proud to be the most forested country in Europe. How do we explain this discrepancy?
"Perhaps the primacy among European countries is the reason why we naively and mistakenly think that we do not have a problem with greenery," Milan Hronec, program manager of the Ekopolis Foundation, thinks.
