paula and it looks like that currently it's mostly because of cardboard so when people are buying things online from from shops like a muscle and they'll be unpacked in the cardboard you get it's your home and then you troll with the way and. that's the spot for climate on the spot but for everything. germany is still the biggest consumer of the paper products from finland and the paper you know it would for a duck soup boy if it comes from finland it might involve problems for the for the reindeer herd just it might involve problems of biodiversity and i would say that people should be more conscious think more what will they use in france susana and pierre are investigating a promising idea sustainable houses made entirely of wood when they're built well they can be very long lasting they have an appointment with architect.
4:46 am
to lead what's that you know it's a portable home you can live in it and if you meet someone a girlfriend you can put a 2nd one right next to it. if it doesn't work out you just take them apart again but there's nothing here you know. this is the design everything we see here is wood from the of the near forest and we're really proud because we know where our raw material is being used the wood is stories c o 2 and it's being used locally. when wood is used for construction it binds c o 2 longer than if it's made into paper the architect has a new commission for that. i need you. so you need douglas fir yes along with other kinds of wood. right otherwise it all looks the same aspen would be fantastic for the cladding. over will get quite a bit out and it should be enough for the house at about 300 meters just tell us
4:47 am
how much and what kinds of wood you need we'll set it aside i was reserve it for you 300 cubic meters that's 200 mill so 140 cubic metres to. a local buyer and no middleman susana and p.r. are pleased with the results. using the word sustainably is important but so is the way that the trees are logged. in the back they'll be felling some old oaks today. it's a job that requires a fair bit of skill and they're planning to fell this tree a cherry tree is in the way they debate which direction the oak should fall to minimize damage to surrounding trees. and its tight quarters if they're hoping to spare a nearby oak there was a booth but the beech tree will have to come down. the forester's try to do as little damage as possible when they're felling big trees in
4:48 am
the windows and sure the young trees nearby could easily be after it. carefully selected the oaks that will be felled today they only harvest trees that will command a good price the forester's long term plan is to double the amount of oak in this forest and he's well on the way. other than i think a very good this is when an oak comes down i feel like i can hear it scream. that may sound nuts but an oak is a living being just like an animal we need to treat them with care for a cat eats a mouse and we humans need wouldn't but it pains me every time i have to kill an animal or a trade to meet my own needs for my bike to be dismissal but it was a comment on that was i on the loggers are still debating how to fell the tree via
4:49 am
going to good. the yoke is a heavy weight and it's tilted slightly in the wrong direction the loggers are using a winch to guide it in the other direction you notice. nothing is rushed here but the forest still earns the city a tiny profit. now the trainee is given a recap. you might wonder if all this effort was worth it the oak was already too thin and we could have just let it go down in that direction but those young trees are the future of this forest the next generation also want to sell high quality wood this tree has been here 200 years so we should respect that and take the time to do our job properly we don't want to just yank it down we want it to fall in the right direction walt. even though there's
4:50 am
sometimes collateral damage this forest is densely wooded and thriving. the loopback forest draws customers from far and wide these buyers came from more than 300 kilometers away they want a high quality yoke for their veneer workshop the cubic meter price depends on the woods quality the price of every log is negotiated separately. one of the virus points out a flaw in this section of the truck he's aiming for a good price or for them to open the door for 400 year old but canoe to storm stays unruffled he's used to these kinds of negotiations it's. not like the buyers are also debating exactly how much of
4:51 am
a lock to purchase. what they'd prefer is 3 meters 50 with a minimum of knots removed from city hall for that they'd be willing to pay a premium for $600.00 and it's yours as well that was painless right you're going to be looking. for stuff from you what if we take 660 for 360 that's what i will but that's not enough. in the end they buy several truckloads the price is a trade secret. for and the way you can watch doom runs these wars is pretty much unique in germany fortunes if you will pardon it if they let the trees get old and fat. you want to find trees of this size in places where they felt the trees much sooner fortune the rat if you hear the trees grow old or old and sturdy. that's what we want for your statements were among the monument and. it's a nice market but
4:52 am
a lucrative one i. like to think of the other day and yes we want to go to the customers are also willing to pay a premium because they know they're not getting a legally harvested timber. from the. georgian force which isn't and that's what makes german forestry appealing this is new it's not like romania or ukraine when it comes to observing regulations you know they're too lax for our tastes is in washington d.c. and. your highness sonnen of the world wide fund for nature and alexandru a romanian police investigator are heading out to take a look at illegal logging practices in the area. when they drove us quite far away to show was illegal logging then they said oh it's not that bad really there's no illegal logging anyhow everything's great at this from to you. and everyone denies there is illegal clear cutting in the area they feel like
4:53 am
they're being stonewalled. job well that's an example all right i should be. there told only a handful of trees have been felled and there's no clear cutting alexandru is frustrated with the local police. takes a sample of the wood to the ceiling well you know you see it's obviously i've taken a specimen so that we can send it to the isotope lab as a reference to see if illegal timber turns up we can compare it to the sample and. sonnen isn't just an activist he's also a specialist in wood forensics he helped develop this investigative technique he's used it a number of times to prove that supposedly legally felled word was actually illegal timber. here. in the
4:54 am
sea and it seems. it's really not skits we have to go forward sort of to me because it's something like. ok let's continue. on. as they hike up to the peak yohannes talks to the local police officers. nearly every road that crossed. the street there were a lot so locking is every wish but a how to live a day how little control them maybe they have out there is asian for death yes oh yeah 99 percent have papers. after a 2 hour hike uphill they finally arrive at their destination most of the logging here is clearly older but a few of the trees were felled recently. it's
4:55 am
close to clear. what leaf forest is told that they still around $1000.00 crease in this area. we have forest those are badly paid and there you go to the houses of the 1st us and they have the cow says how can you have suits house where you earn only very little money it's an indicator that something is wrong. it's a leap in our experience was rather mixed use it's almost amusing at times as clearly they didn't want to put romania in a bad light but with all the illegal business going on there you'd need an awfully big blanket for that coverage. suited to. simon says the main problem is corruption that's why he and his fellow activists have taken up the
4:56 am
fight to save the forests. can you to shoreham has also seized the initiative together with thorsten valla of the natural forest academy he wants to refute the claim that young conifer forests bind more c o 2 than older mixed forests they should go and stay in outside of the laser scanner this is the center of the area we want to scan if there's a dinner you. skin. storm is convinced that mixed with limbs grow faster and bind more c o 2 than most researchers believe. we've got a mixed forest with trees of different ages our theory is that enhances growth. setting up the poles of reference will. the 3 d. scanner shows how much the trees have grown since the last measurements were taken . to look i'm off until now i press the button and it will measure everything.
4:57 am
i have the device is always the same height at chest level it makes few errors than a human would because people make mistakes every now and then. is good this isn't a dog this gives you solid data that you can report and you get numbers measurements that you can show people the international studies of showing that a high level of species diversity for a large variety of trees in a forest in heads is productivity and growth and thus open all of us with that's exactly what we see in lubec based forest isn't unique it was the this is how ecosystems work and it would be nice if forestry operations were to take that on board itself so i'm going to i'm going to. canoe to storm hopes that one day i'll be able to convince his critics. did so are the numbers are on our side and
4:58 am
not just our economic balanchine but the ecological data we're seeing species return to our forest that only live in primeval forests including insect bat and bird species that's quite a success for. responsible woodland management without corruption and without reckless over exploitation. that's the future these activists are fighting for. when a single cause or injury what the. 911. time was denying and powerful sound amazing new sports car of choice for many current easy as a legend an icon about selling the 911 the very essence of the

5:02 am
the memory of all those are mean and perished in the genocide began exactly 160 years ago thousands of people in armenia as capital yerevan have been commemorating the mass killing state for taishan and forced marches. marching forward to look back many and officials lead the nation in commemorating the horrors of the past the procession at this hilltop memorial in the capital we haven't included prime minister nicole passion yann members of the public to streamed in to honor the dead and they welcomed the announcement from washington formally recognizing those past events as a genocide. so i think it's a great thing that biden recognizes the armenian genocide because the us are a major country and it might have an effect on turkey. we've been waiting for this
5:03 am
for years we wanted this before biden many made promises trump did and so did those before him and we waited. in 1915 a 1000000 armenians were brutally murdered by ottoman turks many more were deported and sent on death marches into the syrian desert. armenians have long campaigned for the crimes against their people to be recognized internationally as genocide. turkey argues that there was no systematic attempt to wipe out armenians and no such order from the ottoman authorities. but nearly 30 countries have recognized the atrocities as genocide many armenians would consider the diplomatic spats over terminology a distraction from the memory of atrocities of more than a century ago that haunts their nation to this day. earlier we spoke to
5:04 am
our correspondent dorian jones and istanbul about turkey's furious response to joe biden's elf. scandalous is what the turkish foreign ministry said in a statement saying this is inflicted deep wounds to turkish u.s. relations while the president of egypt type one and a message to the armenian patriarca said that this issue should be resolved by historians and shouldn't be allowed to be exploited by 3rd party political opportunists while the turkish foreign minister measured in a tweet said that turkey does need any lectures on on its history and said that this was a great wound to injustice and. peace in the country so a lot of anger also turkey's or main opposition parties have also fallen into line with the government with the notable exception of the. p. which does recognize the armenian genocide so there's
5:05 am
a great deal of anger in the country and why there is not only a feeling of of injustice historically but also the fear that the growing movement of recognizing armenian genocide could open up turkey to claims of international reparations from relatives of those killed but despite the high stakes there's been no talk of retaliation from uncle no calls or no reports of recalling turkish ambassador back to turkey or even restricting the use of a key military air base of injury look which is used by the americans and it does appear that turkey wants to look beyond this crisis because it is aware the relations are rock bottom with the u.s. and he's looking to rebuild those relations and present one has agreed apparently to meet with president biden in june on the sidelines on the nato summit. terry jones reporting there let's move to india now where hospitals are launching desperate of peel's for help as the health system crumbles coronavirus infection rates in the country continue to break global records the government has given top
