For example, a government statement states: “Forests are our national heritage, not timber mills. We will set up a system of positive and economic motivation for the owners for the necessary transformation of forests – changing the species composition and structure, natural renewal, adaptation to climate change and increasing biodiversity.
We will support the restoration of forests after the bark beetle calamity by methods close to nature with natural species composition in the given habitats. We will create a strategy for the restoration and rebuilding of forest stands with an emphasis on strengthening ecosystem functions according to the risk of forest disintegration and biomonitoring of the response of forests to drought. We will change the approach to forestry policy and establish its long-term goals.” Why such rhetoric?
