TITAN GROUP WILL BUILD A NEW TREE NURSERY

It is planned to grow the seedlings with a closed root system (CRS) for reforestation needs in Pinega region. This year Karpogorskoe subdivision will set up a greenhouse complex with the capacity of 450 planting material units.

Today Titan grows seedlings of coniferous species in 11 greenhouses of Shalakushskoe subdivision in Nyandoma district of Arkhangelsk region. The holding invests over 100 million rubles in reforestation annually.

Last year the company reproduced forest in the area of 21.5 thousand hectares, which is by 15% more than has been planned initially. Over 3 million trees were planted on the forest grounds. The Titan Group’s priority position is to increase the volume of artificial reforestation with the use of CRS seedlings.

Apart from the reforestation actions, the holding’s enterprises are busy with treatment of the last years’ plantings. In 2021 the agricultural and forestry maintenance on the coniferous species were conducted in the area of 2.6 thousand hectares, the thinning in the young forests was carried out on 3 thousand hectares of the forest grounds.

The annual growth of the thinning is a result of a planned work to transit to the intensive model of the forest usage. They stress in the holding that this is an important stage of the responsible and effective forestry.

Under conditions of a natural reforestation domination, the thinning is the only optimal variant to form forest plantings of the target timber species out of the young forests of the natural origin. The lack of treatment in the artificially reforested areas leads to the death of more than a half of pine and spruce seedlings, the experts underline.
