THANH HOA (VNS) — Four forest fires have destroyed over 145ha of forest in Thanh Hoa Province since the end of last month, causing losses of VND10.8 billion (US$495,000).

A report by the province's Agriculture and Rural Development Department showed that only 47.23ha of the area could be replanted.

The report also said that the fires were detected and extinguished swiftly, helping to minimise losses.

Local authorities are helping people to choose seedlings and the right time to ensure effective forestation. — VNS
