The methodology for calculating the compensation cost and calculating the amount of damage caused by illegal logging, injuries and destruction of green stands developed for land owned by the municipality in the territory of the Berezovskiy Region of the Krasnoyarsk Krai is discussed. The compensation value of green stands is a derived value of replacement value. The compensation value is calculated by applying correction factors to the replacement cost and taking into account the influence of such factors as location, actual state, ecological and social significance of green stands on the value of the stands and is determined by the formula: Сct = Сr × Кt × Кс × Кses × Кtr, where Сct isthe compensation value of the tree; Cr – the replacement cost of the tree; Kt – territorial factor; Кс – the tree condition coefficient; Кses – coefficient of social and environmental significance; Ktr – the number of trees to be removed (all in Russian Rubles). Territorial coefficients and coefficients of social and environmental significance are applied. With green stands simultaneously belong to different categories, selected to take into account their social and ecological significance, the maximum value of a similar coefficient should be included in the cost calculations. The amount of damage caused by illegal logging and (or) destruction of green stands is calculated taking into account compensation value of cut down and (or) destroyed green stands using Km = 5 multiplying factor. If the green stands are damaged and do not cause growth to stop, the damage is estimated at 0.5 of the compensation value of the damaged green stands. The compensation cost of cut-off green stands in case of forced demolition and damage caused by illegal logging, injuring or destruction of green stands shall be paid to the budget of the municipal entity in Berezovskiy District of the Krasnoyarsk Krai. The method can be recommended to be used in other regions of Siberia that are similar in natural climatic conditions, with adjustments of territorial coefficients.
