Recently, the forest Fund of the Yaroslavl region as a whole is characterized by a reduction in the area of young plants while increasing the area of Mature plantations. This trend can be seen in both coniferous and soft-leaved species. This is primarily due to the insufficient use of the calculated cutting area, which leads to the accumulation of ripe and over-Mature plantings. The increase in the area of young growth was noted over the past five years only in the Breitovsky and Pereslavsky forest areas. At the same time, only in the Breitovsky forestry almost all the increase in the area of young growth was due to coniferous plantations.
