A record harvest of cedar seeds is expected in Khabarovsk

In the Khabarovsk Territory, a high yield of seeds of Korean cedar pine, Dahurian larch, and Ayan spruce is expected. It is reported by the press service of the regional government with reference to the specialists of regional forestry.

According to Ivan Denisov, head of the forest management department of the regional government, the yield of these species in the region has been extremely low for the last 6-8 years, and in some years it was completely absent. “This has led to a decrease in the stocks of forest seeds in the insurance fund of the Khabarovsk Territory, which was created 8 years ago. Therefore, this year it is necessary to procure the maximum possible amount of seeds to replenish the fund, ”he said.

The highest yield of cedar seeds is expected in the Bikinsky, Vyazemsky, Nanaian, Soviet-Havana and Khabarovsky districts. From September to November, they are planned to be collected from 20 to 30 tons. The logging will be carried out both by the regional forestry institutions for sowing seeds in nurseries, and by tenants of forest areas for subsequent transfer of the crop to the insurance fund of the region. Particular attention will be paid to the harvesting of improved cedar seeds on elite seed forest plantations, where the highest yield is expected. The collection of such seeds will allow further work on forest selection.
