The young forests of the Caucasus

Moldovanovka

Not very far from Maykop on the Federal highway M4 don, between the Hot Key and Dzhubga, beyond the pass, in the mountains is the village of Moldovanovka. Mountains covered with dense forest, which is now heavily cut down by poachers (it seems like everything of value was cut down). Father (about 1955) my friend claims that in his childhood, the mountains were bald. The forest was not at all. Friend says, go with father in the woods, he says that earlier this place was a collective farm, grew tobacco. Friend – what field, then solid wood?? – But this field was not then a forest.
