TITAN GROUP INCREASES THE AREA OF THINNING IN YOUNG FORESTS BY 20%
Last year Titan Group companies completed the young forest treatment on 2896 hectares of forest lots. It is planned to fulfil such works on more than 3.6 thousand he this year. All the detached subdivisions of the holding will carry out thinning in their forests.
Currently the works are in high progress. Both the specialists of the subdivisions and the contractors work with brush cutters. All the engaged personnel has undergone special training.
The young forest thinning is an important stage of forestry intensification. This is a modern method to form target (economically valuable) tree species in natural and artificially planted forests.
“The natural selection also applies to young forests. A growing forest self-thins in the competition for nutritious substances and sunlight. Over 95% trees in young forests die in time under the natural conditions. The thinning allows to control this process at an early stage and helps the forest grow quicker and with better quality”, - Forestry Director for Titan Group Sergey Shevelev indicated.
Not only planned works are in progress in the holding’s lease area. For example, just before Verkhnetoemskoe subdivision of Titan Group completed the young forests thinning with a uniform method. The thinning has been completed in the area of more than 90 he. One million rubles was allocated for these works. The company won this sum last year in the all-Russian competition “Reforestation with excellent rating”!
