Events, facts, documents and evidences: In the earlier page of the section "Photo-fact-2003", there was a story and demonstrations of timber processing factories surrounded Belovezhskaya Pushcha (see the page "Wood processing factories around Belovezhskaya Pushcha (2002 - 2003)".
The number of sawmills in the vicinity of Belovezhskaya Pushcha has not decreased over the last year, moreover it has increased. Beautiful and amazing reserved wood draws appetites of many people for whom the most important is in their life to earn money, including from the utilizing natural values of the global importance. The state policy of the last years was the same - the priority to use reserved resources instead to protect them. It stimulates the development of timber processing that became a dominating kind of activity in the region of Belovezhskaya Pushcha. As a result, Belovezhskaya Pushcha as a wild reserved natural wood reduces its area more and more every year.
As an example presented in these pictures, the sawmill, one of the many, owned by a Polish businessman and located near the village of Selishche successfully operated in 2004. The best timber of high commercial value is delivered from Belovezhskaya Pushcha to this sawmill as its wood production is exported to the Western Europe. Pictures show the stacks of sick-trunk wood grouped around the sawmill.

In the autumn, the area surrounded the sawmill changed a general view - a perfect wood from Belovezhskaya Pushcha is not stored any more in the adjacent to the sawmill territory, while is delivered inside the fenced area being kept far away from the people's eyes (apparently, it was done after the occurrence of photos on the sawmill in the Internet). However this did not decrease volumes of the timber processing by this sawmill.
These pictures show a general view of the area around the sawmill before publications in the Internet.
