LANDOWNING units in the North who have logging concessions with the Fiji Forest Industries have been reminded not to disturb the forest areas under concession.

The reminder from the Ministry of Forests follows increasing queries raised with the ministry over FFI’s concession.

In a recent landowner’s consultation in Bua, Moape Lotawa, head of Forestry North pleaded with landowners to leave the logging areas alone.

“The concessions are still valid and landowners are not to disturb the logging areas,” he said.
