The Forestry Department is coupling a 10-year suspension of logging in the Bago Yoma forest with a reforestation for clear-cut areas, said U Kyaw Hsan Moe, a staff officer of the Forestry Department in Yedashe Township.
“Bago Yoma forest area is vast, therefore, we want people to cooperate with us in protection of the forest resources,” he said.
“Our forestry department is conducting the reforestation activities in day time and is
protecting the forest at night.”
Currently, the Forestry Department has already cultivated 1,809 acres of teak in the Bago Yoma forest reserve, 300 acres in the Saiya forest reserve and 4,200 acres in the Kyaukmahsin forest reserve.
