Logging frontier, Intact Forest Landscape of the Pinega and Vashka Riversí watershed

Description

Information

Intact forest landscape of the Pinega and Vashka Riversí watershed, northeast of the town of Karpogory, on the border of the Arkhangelsk Region and the Komi Republic, Russia. This distinctive landscape is represented by a natural mosaic of spruce forests, fir and spruce forests (dark grayish green); aspen, spruce and birch forests (lighter green); and pine and spruce forests (dark green). In the northern part of the landscape, there are patches of dry pine forests (magenta, purple) along the large Vashka River valley. Secondary deciduous forests in former clear-cut areas are bright green and distinctive. The chess pattern of clear-cuts is destroying the intact forest landscape from south, west and east.
