PJSC «RussNeft» will triple the volume of reforestation work in 2021. This year the Company plans to plant about 2 million seedlings on the area of more than 540 hectares (ha) in Khanty-Mansi Autonomous District (Yugra).

Reforestation work last year affected an area of 170 hectares, where more than 634,000 seedlings were planted at the expense of RussNeft.

The Company uses improved and varietal forest plant seeds adapted to the regional characteristics of the planting area when replanting forests. Pine seedlings pre-grown in nurseries to a height of 12-20 cm are usually used for reforestation.
