Winds and rain destroy over 3 percent of forestry agency’s annual output

Heavy winds and rain in the last week destroyed almost 250,000 cubic metres of wood owned by state forestry agency Lesy ČR, a spokesperson said on Tuesday. The wood lost amounts to over 3 percent of Lesy ČR's annual output. Removing and processing the trees blown down could take weeks or even months. People have been warned to be careful if they visit forestry hit by the recent adverse weather conditions, which had a particularly strong impact in Moravia.
