Vologda Region might become a venue for a federal forest forum with international participation.

Federation Council Deputy Chairman Yuri Vorobyov proposed to organize a large-scale international forest forum in Russia. Vologda Region Govenor Oleg Kuvshinnikov suggested to choose the Vologda Region as a venue for such an event, he identified the region’s advantages, achievements and experience in this sphere.

The Vologda Region is among the TOP 5 Russian regions in terms of reforestation rates, it ranks first in terms of forest intensity and third in terms of volume of harvested wood. In terms of reforestation area, it is the leader among the regions of the North-West. Our region is the country’s leader in terms of the number of priority investment projects implemented in the field of forest development, while 75% of the harvested wood is processed on its territory.

The Vologda Region is a vast wooded area with some 81% of its total land covered with forests. Wood is the most precious treasure of the region.

International Exhibition Russian Forest, an exhibition for innovation technologies to be applied in the timber industry, in production of technological equipment for forestry and manufacture of wood and wood-working articles, is an event with a long tradition. It will take place in Vologda for the 26th time in 2021. This year it will gather Russian and foreign experts from the world of timber industry to state their positions on current issues at numerous meetings, workshops and press conferences.

It will expand international cooperation in forest conservation, protection and reproduction, attract investment in the forest complex and increase exports of wood products. This requires consolidating the efforts of government, science, business, environmental organizations and the international community.
