Want to cut down a tree – ask Kyiv Mayor how
The Kyiv City State Administration adopted respective amendments
Trees older than 60 years will be cut down in Kyiv only upon receiving a special permit from Kyiv Mayor Leonid Chernovetskiy.
The Kyiv City State Administration adopted respective amendments to the KCSA resolution of June 27, 2007 “On Procedure of Cutting Down Green Plantations on the Territory of Kyiv City”. The Kyiv Mayor signed the amendments last week.
L.Chernovetskiy disclosed to journalists that the new resolution introduces stricter regulations of cutting down trees in the city. According to the Mayor, a particular attention will be paid to trees older than 100 years.
“It will be unprofitable to cut down trees older than 100 years”, L.Chernovetskiy said, adding that in many world countries tourists like to see not only historical places of interests, but also trees aged 300-500 years old.
