Net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the land use, land-use change, and forestry (LULUCF) sector were -4.736 kt CO2 eq in 2019, meaning that sinks were higher than emissions. According to the Slovenian Forest Service, felling decreased by about 13% in 2019 and as much as 30% in 2020 compared to 2018. For the first time since 2014, the share of sanitary felling in total felling was below 50%, which is related to the calming of the overpopulation of beetles and low forest damage due to natural disasters in 2019 and 2020.
