The moratorium on cutting down trees has been extended until the end of 2021.
During the moratorium, it will be mandatory to plant as compensation 10 large seedlings of equal value for each cut-down tree. The seedlings must be at least 5 years of age and at least 2 meters high. They must be cared for at least two years.
The amount of compensation for each illegally cut tree, however, is 100 seedlings and 3 years of care.
It should be reminded that in October 2019, President Shavkat Mirziyoyev signed a decree imposing a moratorium from November 1, 2019, to December 31, 2020, on the cutting down of valuable trees and shrubs that are not part of the state forest fund.
