In 2016 it has been suggested for the Public Council of the Krasnoyarsk Ministry of Nature Resources and Ecology to draw up «Strategy and the Guidance for Developing the Krasnoyarsk Forest Complex until 2030». It suggested setting up a working group of leading researchers and technical experts affiliated with the ministry. Continuity principle should be applied, wherefore analysis of previous experience in elaboration and implementation of such documents is realized. Study of forest fund dynamics for a long-term period of time is an important indicator. Thus, the Krasnoyarsk forest dynamics for the last 50 years (1961–2011) shows extensive development of the regional forest complex. The total growing stock decreased by 12 % and growing stock of coniferous species – by 35 %. «The Concept and Basic Guidelines of Developing the Krasnoyarsk Forest Complex for the Period 2004–2015», that were elaborated by the Moscow State Science Center of Forest Industrial Complex, have been analyzed and principle shortcomings have been noted. In essence, this concept was the basis of developing forest industry, but forestry, as an integral part of forest complex, and biosphere role of forests was not considered. Forest resources were overestimated by tradition. Ecological and economic accessibility of forests were not taken into consideration. Subsequent strategies and programs of the Krasnoyarsk forest complex development, elaborated by the ministry, reduplicated shortcomings of the concept. Following «Strategy of the Krasnoyarsk Forest Industry Development until 2020», the annual allowable cut consists of 81.9 million m3, therefore it may educe increasing harvesting volume of the region without limitation. Meanwhile, the annual allowable cut, which is economically accessible, amounts to 26.8 million m3 (32.7 % of the operating annual allowable cut). Applies and the structure of «Strategy and the Guidance for Developing the Krasnoyarsk Forest Complex until 2030» have been proposed.
