As temperatures begin to climb, once again, the Forestry Department warns of potential forest fires. The Forestry Office issued a statemeent to say that most fires occur in summer and the main cause is the “neglect and carelessness” of people.

Last year, the Forestry Department planted over 450,000 saplings in 11 regions in the TRNC. Over the last 17 months, 355 acres of private land and 111 acres of forest have been burned, damaging thousands of trees.

People are asked to be careful and not to throw away waste such as glass and bottles, and cigarette ends. They are also asked not to start unauthorised bonfires.
