      The program scheduled for 2016-2018 consists of two stages.


      "At first the entire territory damaged by forest fires will undergo forest pathology inspection and sanitary cutting will be carried out on the area of over 65 thousand hectares. At the second stage reforestation works will be carried out on these sites: clearing the areas, preparing the soil and creating forest cultures" - the press release reads.
