The business meeting regarding the issues of the adoption of the forest management and forest use intensive model was held during the business program of the VI Russian Championship "Logger of XXI century".
During the meeting, the representatives of Federal Forestry Agency, Forestry Department of North-Western Federal District, St. Petersburg Research Institute of Forestry, Regional Ministry of Natural Resources and Forest Industry Complex, as well as representatives of major forestry companies discussed the algorithm of forest management standard development for the northern taiga sub-zone of the European part of the Russian Federation.
All stages of the intensive forestry cycle: natural and artificial forest regeneration, young growth tending, severance felling were shown to participants at the seminar.
Sergey Shevelev, Director of Forestry of Titan Group of Companies, shared the experience of correct forest management with the participants of the seminar. He noted that the logging divisions of Titan Group of Companies annually carry out the tending cutting on the area of more than 2 thousand hectares and the serious experience of such works has been already accumulated. "If the timely and competent tending cutting of young forest growth is missing, then reforestation activities are often useless for formation of valuable forest stands of target wood species. The lack of care leads to the death of more than half of the seedlings of pines and spruces", - said Sergey Shevelev.
At the meeting, it was decided to start the development of the justification for changing forest management regulations.
"The specialists of Ministry are ready to participate in the preparation of forests intensive use and reproduction regulations for the northern taiga forest sub-zone", - assured Igor Muraev, Minister of Natural Resources and Forest Industry Complex of Arkhangelsk region. - This work will take time and it is planned to carry out the whole cycle by the end of 2023. In the near future we will prepare a number of business meetings on this topic at the ministry's site".
