Thanks to introduced protective measures against wood engraver we succeeded to sell a considerably higher share of wood not-attacked by the pest for very good prices. If we did not carry out these measures, it could mean lower incomes of the state enterprise by as much as half a milliard crowns”, a general director of Lesy ČR Svatopluk Sýkora explains.
