Intact forest landscape of the Dvina and Pinega Riversí watershed

Description

Information

The famous intact forest landscape of the Dvina and Pinega Riversí watershed (Arkhangelsk Region, Russia). The difference between intact coniferous forests (dark) and secondary deciduous forests after clearcuts (light green) is distinctive. In the western part of the forest landscape there are several wetlands (white-turquoise-blue-pink areas), probably on karst land. Rectangular clearcut areas penetrate these forests from all sides, especially from the north. Over the past decade, this intact forest landscape has been in the focus of acute conflict between forest companies and nature conservation non-governmental organizations (NGOs). A compromise plan for a protected area is currently under negotiation.
