In particular, the Minister of Forestry of the Republic of Tatarstan Nail Gambarovich Magdeyev noted in his speech that the region is one of the leading Russian and here pays special attention to environmental issues.

Head of Department of Forest Management and Reforestation Rosleskhoz MS Doronin stressed that such financing major projects require the same serious recruitment - both for construction and for the further operation of these centers.

In the Sabine forestry guests acquainted with the cultivation of planting material in the new seed selection center for Swedish technology. Use of such material increases the survival rate of trees in natural conditions. For two years the center has already raised 24 million seedlings of conifers.

Great interest was aroused also visit arboretum garden named former director Sabinsky forestry, forester RSFSR Honored TASSR Nurgali Minnihanov. In an area of 11.25 ha was able to collect about 300 plant species from the Far East, Europe and Asia.

Trip to Kaybitsky forestry opened the conference participants the practical side of conservation and reproduction oak. The guests visited the genetic reserve oak and linden branch VNIILM dedicated scientists. Since Peter I of Russia the best specimens of oaks were felled, while nobody cared about saving material for their reproduction. Today in forest genetic reserves an area of almost 750 hectares is being painstaking work to preserve the most valuable gene pool for reproduction oak. The most "successful" boled oaks ("plus trees") are fenced specifically, their acorns later become the main foundation creating high oak stands.

The conference raised the issue of construction in KAYBITSY research and production center "Oakwood Russia." It is planned to equip it with modern Swedish and German equipment. Here, among other things, the lab will be located DNA labeling camera cryopreservation 250 tons of English oak acorns, fields for growing seedlings with closed root system. According to many Russian and Western scientists and foresters, project KAYBITSY particularly interesting because here is the extreme border of oak forests in Europe, growing in extreme conditions, dry summers and severe cold.

Overall, the program was intense and useful - is noted in their closing statements, the conference participants. Director VNIILM AA Martynyuk presented letters of appreciation for their assistance in this endeavor Minister of Forestry of the Republic of Tatarstan NG Magdeeva, head-forester forestry Sabinsky VN Gizzatullina and head-forester forestry Kaybitsky IH Haffazovu.
