Oak Forest, one of the biggest in western Iran, is located in Kurdistan province, on the border with Iraq, between the city of Baneh and Sardasht. The forest has an intact and pristine nature and the region has become a popular recreational site in Iran and a lot of travelers visit the region every day. But unfortunately, the region has turned into a place for gathering trash and garbage which teases every traveler from 10 kilometers away. The garbage goes directly into a river near the forest which depletes the groundwater as well, the reason behind many diseases in surrounding villages. Unfortunately and despite strikes and protests by environmentalist, no serious action has been taken by the regional authorities till now. Hundreds of tons of non- recyclable materials have been dispersed by the wind into the forest.
