As the Myanmar government enhances supervision and management in illegal logging. The loggers in the mountain are more difficult now. There is a very high-risk in transportation and it influence the price. The forest-police would arrest the people and confiscate both the truck and woods when they find someone do the illegal things in the forest. There are many valuable trees in Myanmar. Somewhere in the mountain the vehicles can’t reach they will use elephants to transport the woods to the main road. They train the elephants and look after each other in the village they built for logging.
