Our concern remains the protection of the forest environment in combination with the protection of the property of Greek citizens. With this initiative, we provide a solution to another decades-old pathology”.

The Deputy Minister of Environment and Energy, responsible for forests, Giorgos Amyras, said: “After thorough work, so that forest protection and citizens’ immovable property coexist harmoniously and in accordance with the law, the Ministry of Environment and Energy is closing one more big pending”.

The General Secretary of Forests, Konstantinos Arabosis, said in this regard: “These regulations are another means of protecting citizens’ property, alongside the protection of the environment and forests, based on the special economic and technical studies provided for by the Law and will be drawn up in all cases”.
