Net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the land use, land-use change, and forestry (LULUCF) sector were 243 kt CO2 eq in 2018. The LULUCF sector has been a net source of GHG emissions since 2014, or in other words, emissions in the sector are higher than the sinks. The largest contributor to the decrease in net removals in the sector are forest fellings, which increased by about 22% compared to 2017, according to the Slovenian Forest Service. We may be concerned that about two thirds of the value of fellings in 2018 is represented by sanitary cuts, which means that the consequences of natural disturbances and outbreaks of bark beetle are still strongly present in Slovenian forests.
