Article 11 shall be amended to add the following wording: “Transfer of forest land into other categories of land shall be prohibited in the following cases: (a) Group I forests; (b) Group II - protection of ecosystems in forests, except in specified cases; (c) in groups III - in forests of protected areas and in protected areas of state reserves, except for specific cases; (d) in other forests located one kilometer from the Baltic Sea and the Curonian Spit, in recreational forests of Group II and in protected areas, field protection and national park protection zones of Group III except for specific cases. Persons who initiate the conversion of state forest land into other agricultural land categories must pay monetary compensation to the state budget, which includes the cost of transfer into land of other categories at market prices, the costs of forest growing up to the age at which tree species were subject to conversion, and the value of the loss of timber of the forest stand. In the conversion of forest land into other categories of forests in Group III forests, a dual monetary compensation is paid, in the forests of Group II - a triple monetary compensation. The requirement to pay monetary compensation does not apply to the conversion of part of the forest land into other land, destined for grassland and/or allotment for cemetery or for national defense purposes”.
