Events, facts, documents and evidences: It was described earlier which big-sized slab (carving wood from a lateral part of the log), remnants after the sawing big-sized pine logs at the wood processing plant of the National Park, was used to stoke stoves by some locals from Belovezhskaya Pushcha.
These photos show which size of wood blocks sawn from big-sized spruce trees were used for heating of the local bath-house. The age of these spruce trees is about 150 - 200 years and the thickness is about one and a half meter, not excepting that some spruce trees – giants - could be older among them there. One can see on the photos that the wood is of a very bad quality after logs were lying in the forest and then at the wood processing shop for a few years to be rotten and turned black. But look here it is important to leave trees such thick as these in the forest for conservation of biological and species diversity. In our case, these trees were cut and taken out from the forest, plus were made rotten that resulted in being up to mischief, not getting an economic profit.
