12 thousand hectares of forest are to be restored in Primorye this year

The reforestation plan in Primorye for this year includes about 12 thousand hectares. These are areas where the forest will be planted artificially and the conditions for its natural restoration will be created. In addition, the volume and quality of the Ussuriysky forestry will be assessed and a specific purpose for the Vladivostok forestry will be designed.

According to the Primorsky Krai government, the reforestation plan for 2022 is about 12,000 hectares. Includes natural and artificial reforestation. The main type of reforestation remains natural, when instead of planting trees, they take care of the undergrowth, protect the areas and ensure fire safety.

About 2.5 million seedlings will be needed for artificial restoration. According to the Minister of Forests and Wildlife Protection, Konstantin Stepanov, this year the extent of this reforestation will be slightly smaller compared to last year. This is due to the reduction in the number of areas that require artificial reforestation.

“Last year 2021 was productive, we managed to collect 27 tons of seeds from the main species that form forests: Korean cedar, deciduous spruce, Mongolian oak, Manchuria ash. The seeds are still being tested for sowing properties, but it is already known that some of the seeds are first class, they will be included in the seed insurance fund of the Primorsky region “, added Konstantin Stepanov.

The Ministry of Development of the Far East clarifies that the forest will also be restored by a resident of the free port LLC ForestGrand, which is engaged in logging and timber production in Spassk-Dalniy. The estimated area of ​​natural reforestation in the Kavalerovsky area will be 1,149 hectares, artificial reforestation in the Dalnerechensky and Chuguevsky areas – about 42 hectares. At least 126,000 young trees will be planted.

“Managing the hammocks, releasing the logging residues from blockages, cutting the broken and damaged specimens after cleaning is a must for us. Everything is done to quickly form a young forest at the cutting point. In areas where it is impossible to ensure natural reforestation, we plant seedlings. Cedar seedlings are used as planting material as a priority for our area. “For many years, we have been buying seedlings from the tree nursery in the Chuguevsky area,” said Roman Svichkar, head of production and engineering at ForestGrand.

In addition, Russia has adopted a single federal work plan for forest management for 2022, which removes forest powers from regions and transfers them to the federal level. According to the Dallesproekt press service, the planning of forests according to the new rules will begin in the spring in 43 forestries in 10 regions of the Far East with a total area of ​​over 65 million hectares. All forest management work will be carried out by the operator of the Federal Forest Information System “Roslesinforg”.

In Primorsky this year, experts from Roslesinforg will evaluate the volume and quality of Ussuri forestry. The tax will affect four regional forestry units: Ilyinsky, Komissarovsky, Ussuriysky and Shiryaevsky. The total area of ​​preparatory work is almost 127 thousand hectares. The design of the defined purpose of the forests will start in six forestry: Arsenyevsky, Vladivostok, Kavalerovsky, Sergeevsky, Terneysky, Ussuriysky and Chuguevsky, the total work area in the block will be 729 thousand hectares. Some forest management materials here are obsolete for more than 30 years.

“The forest is a renewable resource of the state. This is an advantage, for effective management it is necessary to take care of it, otherwise the forest will age, dry out and burn. Only the state can and must keep forest records. The complete data will enable the effective planning of forestry for the coming years from the point of view of sustainable development of both the forest sector and the country as a whole, taking into account the interests of industry, technology development, human resources in industry, “Soil development, climate change and, above all, forest conservation and conservation issues,” said Pales Chashchin, director of Roslesinforg.
