Representatives of the Institute of Forestry, Mining and Construction Sciences of PetrSU took part in a seminar on intensive forest management.
On the territory of JSC “Segezha PPM” a seminar on intensive forest use was held.
The company participates in a pilot project to introduce a model of intensive forest use and for the second year already has been conducting forest management felling according to the new standards. Among the participants were representatives of tenants, regulatory authorities, scientific and educational institutions. On behalf of Petrozavodsk State University, Viktor Mikhailovich Lukashevich, Associate Professor of the Department of Technology and Organization of the Forestry Complex of the Institute of Forestry, Mining and Construction Sciences, took part.
The seminar included field and theoretical parts under the guidance of Boris Dmitrievich Romanyuk, an employee of the St. Petersburg Forestry Research Institute . In the field part of the seminar, two sections of passage felling were demonstrated, where the advantages and problems of applying the new requirements were announced. Then, at the plenary session, practical recommendations were presented in more detail for the transition to standards for intensive use of forests during thinning and passage felling. Much attention was paid to innovations at each stage of the work: on the selection of a site for felling, on the allotment of the cutting area, when choosing the parameters of felling, current control and handing over the work to the forestry.
During the working day, there were constant discussions among the participants, showing that interest in intensive forest use will remain a hot topic in the coming years. We are grateful to JSC “Segezha Pulp and Paper Mill”, the Ministry of Natural Resources and Ecology of the Republic of Karelia and the St. Petersburg Research Institute of Forestry for organizing the seminar,
