The Chega Parliamentary Group claims that, after the fires, “loggers pay a third of the value to forestry producers for the burned wood, although this continues to be useful for various purposes”.

In a bill, the party also adds that “the fires that occurred, especially in the summer, circulate a lot of money on account of the destruction and scorched earth”, in this context, Chega argues that “concrete measures must be taken concerning the industry created with the fires and the economic motivations that circulate it”.

The far-right party supports the ban on the sale of burnt wood, “to discourage criminal practice to obtain an economic advantage in the purchase of burnt wood”, as the bill reads.
