KOTA BARU – The Kelantan government will not stop logging activities in the state as they are carried out in accordance with the terms and conditions stipulated under the National Forestry Act 1984, said Deputy Menteri Besar Datuk Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah.

He said logging activities in Kelantan were conducted according to stipulated regulations.

Each state is given a quota by the National Forestry Council, and the condition that after trees are felled, reforestation must be carried out in the affected area, he added.

He said the trees had a set age after which they had to be felled to avoid them falling onto and destroying other growth.

“For example, if the quota given for this year is 3,000ha, we should not exceed 3,000ha. Otherwise, we will be subject to action by the National Forestry Council. The quota is not determined by the state, but the National Forestry Council.
