Eco-activist Saidali Muhtorov expressed concern over the illegal felling of trees. In his opinion, the branches of spruces are the main ingredient in the preparation of the most popular dish in Uzbekistan – “tandir gusht”.
According to eco-activist, although his words may seem ridiculous, but this problem today is more relevant than ever.
Tandir gusht is a traditional dish in Kashkadarya and Surkhandarya.
However, in accordance with the legislation, almost all types of spruces are considered valuable trees.
In addition, the country currently has a moratorium on felling trees.
