Forest protection measures

One of the factors of forest conservation is the timely implementation of measures to protect it. The most important section of this work is preventive measures, which include the construction of nesting sites and the creation of favorable conditions for nesting birds that feed on insects and their larvae. About 300 nests are made and hung annually in the park in places that are most favorable for the reproduction of forest pests. Similarly, work is being carried out on the settlement and enclosure of anthills.
In order to predict the number of harmful insects, a visual forest pathology survey is carried out and pits are laid to determine the number of clutches, pupae in the forest floor and soil.
Work is being carried out on sanitary cleaning of forests, including clearing the forest from clutter: by removing this wood, we reduce both the infectious level in the forests and the fire danger, and the aesthetic condition of the forests increases.
