Timber worth tens of millions of rupees has not been used so far as it remains unattended in various national and community forests of Dang district.
It could not be used as the grading of the timber has not been completed, said the District Forest Office Dang.
The Office said the timber is 189,000 cu. ft. worth more than 70 million rupees.
As they could not be used, most of the soft woods have been decomposed, said co-forest consumers.
Consumers of the community forests said the timber could not be used due to the negligence of the concerned office.
But Assistant District Forest Office Ishwor Poudel said grading of the community forest has begun and will be completed by one month.
