In the Nizhniy Novgorod region in 14 times it is less than foresters, than it is necessary for wood protection

But as it has appeared, since last year, in our region a little that has changed. Foresters have vested with the status « wood protection ». And the quantity of employees remains former, almost ridiculous.

- All woods of the Nizhniy Novgorod region in Department of wood protection serve only 509 persons. From this quantity subtract paper workers, accounts department and so on. Foresters there are much less 500 persons. It turns out, one forester should check up and serve wood territory in 7500 hectares, - the director of department of a forestry of the Nizhniy Novgorod region Nikolay Gorelov on a press - conferences in " has informed; - NN .

For comparison, in Belarus, where the Nizhniy Novgorod officials   Have visited one month ago, one forester is responsible for 500 hectares of wood. That is under the Belarus specifications, in the Nizhniy Novgorod region should be not less than 7000 foresters.

However as Nikolay Gorelov has told, money at area on it is not present. Probably, Belarus which has worried a default in respect of protection of the woods richer than the Nizhniy Novgorod region.
