The treasured Bohemian National Forest is besieged by wood-borers. All ailing trees must be cut out from forest or the forest faces the threat of ecological disaster from die back. However , an erstwhilel ban on the use of mechanical vehicles has left the work up to horses and the dying trade of wood carters. Labourers from Slovakia or the Ukraine toil in a hard job , for little money , as the carters. Its the last place for this work , their jobs facing an imminent extinction. Chopping down forests pose both an ecologic and a big political problem , a national dilemna for the treasured forest : To be chopped down or ban the axe and face die back.
