Latvia: Gov. permits higher volume of felling in state forests

Government of Latvia permits higher volume of felling in state
forests. Without objections, the Cabinet of Ministers of Latvia gave
its approval for increased volume of felling of trees in state forests
by four million cubic meters in 2009 and 2010. The Agriculture
Ministry had drawn up a bill to amend the October 5, 2005 decree,
issued by the Cabinet of Ministers on “Maximum Permitted Volume of
Felling Of Trees 2006-2010, reports LETA. As Prime Minister Ivars
Godmanis (Latvia’s First Party/Latvia’s Way) underlined, this decision
is necessary for a sector that has fallen on hard times.
