The document, introduced by a group of deputies and senators, refers a fallen tree (dry trees or their parts lying on the ground), to non-timber forest resources. The introduction of the corresponding amendment to the Forest Code of the Russian Federation will allow citizens to harvest and collect deadwood for their own needs in the manner prescribed by the law of the constituent entities of the Russian Federation. The adopted regulation should not be perceived as a permission to cut trees for firewood at random.
In addition to solving the domestic problem, citizens, gathering the fallen wood, will help to ensure fire and sanitary safety in the forests, thus clearing them of cluttering with wood materials.
