The storms have destroyed entire forests in Romania and in northeast Europe


The storms have destroyed entire forests in Romania and in northeast Europe
Northeast and Central Europe have become, without their will, important firewood suppliers as thousands of trees have been destroyed. The last storms in Romania have destroyed nearly 460.000 cubic meters of forest, a more than worrying figure, especially as 246,000 cubic meters are mass catches, the entire surface being affected.

If this figure seems to you exaggerated, I can tell you that it is not at all. Just because Romsilva (National Forest Company) has not managed to complete inventory damage due to blocking the access ways, the data being provisional.

Nearly no area in the country was "spared", but most damage was recorded at the Bihor Silvic Directorate (about 200.000 cubic meters), the Arad Silvic Directorate (85,000 cubic meters) and the Maramures Silvic Directorate (70,000 cubic meters).

In the first half of this year, extreme weather phenomena attacked another 82.750 hectares owned by the state and administered by Romsilva.

Along with the destroyed forests, thousands of homes have been damaged and even deaths have been reported. An example was in Bistrita-Nasaud County, where an old man who wanted to save his nephew from broken branches in a park lost his life. At a hospital in the same county, some of the roof was drifting about 50 meters in the wind, leaving everyone who was involved in the disaster horrified. And in the Alba, the wind pulled the roofs from several blocks. In Cluj there was a need for the police to intervene to save 10 remaining people blocked in the mountain, because the trees that had fallen on a 35-km route had to be removed. In Suceava, 55 localities were left without power.

According to the Forest Rules, the affected areas will be restored by the foresters. Here we are talking about mass defeats, where destruction is complete. But before that, it is necessary to obtain legal approvals and then evacuate the affected wood, requiring a period of repatriation of no more than 2 years, according to Romsilva. As for the destroyed trees, they will be harvested as firewood.

These phenomena appear to exist not only in Romania, with northeast Europe being affected by storms. The most feared was Poland, the damage being major, of 8.2 million cubic meters of destroyed wood. This is certainly the biggest disaster in the history of Polish forests, and it takes almost 100 years for the forest areas destroyed within hours of the storm to recover. All northeastern Europe was hit by the "Sebastian" wind storm. It started in the UK (60.000 homes were left without power and many areas were flooded), passing through the Netherlands (where the trees overturned, causing damage to homes and cars), Denmark (where many bridges were closed), Belgium and ended in Germany.
