DescriptionThis site reports the illegal logging practices in Georgian forests. Local and foreign timber producers are using an uncontrollable situation in Georgia to illegally cut down forests of millions of cubic meters. Mountain forests of Georgia have ecological protective functions especially in Racha, in the northwestern part of Georgia in the Caucasus central region. But this protective function is being destroyed as logging on mountain slopes stimulates landslides and floods.
