Inspection campaigns seized 150 tons of local firewood last week across Riyadh, Madinah, Tabuk, Al-Jouf and Hail, as part of a government drive to prevent and combat logging.

The Ministry of Environment, Water and Agriculture is continuing its joint campaign with the Special Forces for Environmental Security (SFES) and the Special Forces for Roads Security in Riyadh.

Forest and rangeland observers at the ministry’s branch in Riyadh carried out an inspection campaign that led to over 40 tons of wood being seized from a warehouse.

In Tabuk, the ministry’s observers carried out an inspection tour across local wood markets and warehouses within the

“Let’s Make It Green” campaign, confiscating over 90 tons of wood.

In Al-Jouf, firewood was confiscated from a number of cars in cooperation with security bodies.

An inspection tour was also carried out across wood-selling markets in Madinah. Local wood was confiscated from cars and legal measures were taken in line with forest and rangeland law and regulations.
