Titan Group starts selective logging in Northern Dvina, Pinega interfluve

ARKHANGELSK. June 19 (Interfax) - Titan Group‘s logging company, Ust-Pokshenga LPH and its section in the Svetly settlement have commenced selective cutting activities in the interfluve area of the Northern Dvina and Pinega rivers in order to preserve the ecosystem and its environment protection function, the Group said in a press release.

This final cutting technique involves harvesting mature timber to prevent over maturing and remove weakened, old or damaged trees to revitalise the forest ecosystem. Selective cutting strictly adheres to preserving an uneven-aged structure, maintaining stand stability, productivity and soil fertility.

Titan‘s companies based in the southern districts of the Arkhangelsk region and Pinezhyeles LLC have use selective cutting since early 2000‘s.

Selective cutting is carried out by Ust-Pokshenga LPH and the section in Svetly on a forest area of over 450 ha, or over 20,000 m³. The total area of selective cutting by Titan Group in 2017 will exceed 4,500 ha of forest land or more than 200,000 m3.

"All of the Group‘s logging companies pursue sustainable forest management policies and minimising the environmental impact," said Titan Group‘s Director for Logging Companies Operations Control, Aleksey Kruptsov. "These principles apply to the complete process and operating cycle (harvesting and transportation of timber). For instance, if any rare animal or plant species are discovered in a leased area, Titan‘s logging companies establish a limited forest use regime and enter all endangered plant and animal species on cutting charts," he said.

The Group is one of the leaders in the scope of forest restoration activities in Russia. A total of 18.1 million rubles was allocated for regeneration of forests in 2016. Titan has carried out forest restoration work on an area of 13,109 ha. Over 1.6 million of pine and spruce seedlings have been planted. 830,000 pine and spruce seedlings were grown in 2016 at the spruce and pine seedling nursery of Shalakushales LLC in Nyandoma district.

All of the 3.2 million ha of forest (area of forest sections) managed by the company are certified to the International Standards of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

Titan Group "would like to emphasize once more that the Group is not only actively engaged in the development of sustainable forest management methods for the leased forest areas together with the environmental organisations, but most importantly continues to be committed to all the signed moratorium agreements for conservation of virgin forests."

The Titan Group of companies is one of the largest operators of forest in the northwestern Federal district. Established in 1990, Titan includes eight logging enterprises, LLC Belomorskaya Splavnaya Company" (transporting timber), and also the largest sawmill company in the North-West of Russia - JSC Lesozavod-25. The allowable cut is 3.2 million m3.
