In the Trans-Baikal Territory, residents of private houses do not have enough firewood for the winter. The regional Legislative Assembly found out that in some districts there were no logging sites for the preparation of firewood for heating.

According to "Rossiyskaya Gazeta", Now a small truck of firewood costs up to 20 thousand rubles. However, due to the depletion of the forest fund in some areas, residents simply have nowhere to procure firewood. Residents of some districts have to travel 250 kilometers to logging sites.

The regional Ministry of Natural Resources notes that the situation will worsen in 2022-2023. Reforestation measures are not enough, and full restoration takes about 100 years. Now the residents were provided with 514 thousand cubic meters of timber for harvesting, only 328 thousand cubic meters remained in reserve.

To solve the problem, the authorities propose to start adjusting the prices for logging tickets for the population. For this, it is necessary to revive the Soviet raytops and gortops, since the forestry enterprises are now unable to do this.
