Now about 4 thousand foresters in the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other paramilitary units defend Ukraine from the occupants. For the needs of the army there were transferred 25 objects of immovable property and 439 vehicles. The military is provided with fuel and lubricants, spare parts, timber, etc.
Combat operations are carried out on 2907 thousand hectares of forest lands. On the front line are: 10 regional departments, 45 state forestry enterprises, 386 forestry units, 603 objects of immovable property and 3236 objects of movable property.
38 state forestry enterprises and 289 forestry units are temporarily occupied. The area of the occupied forest lands is 1478 thousand hectares. That is, today it is practically impossible to carry out forestry activities on 20% of the area.
The infrastructure of state forestry enterprises has become a temporary shelter for 2 thousand people displaced from the zone of military operations. Logistics for the transportation of people and humanitarian aid has been set up.
