This article analyzes approaches to the selection of indicators of regional environmental risks, as well as the impact of risks on reforestation in a particular region. Indicators that characterize the main trends in the forestry industry in Russia were analyzed using monographic, economic, mathematical, and statistical methods. Factors that promote and hinder effective reforestation in the whole country and in the Kirov region are identified. The authors draw a conclusion about the degree of influence of various factors on reforestation in the region. The consolidated environmental rating of the region was determined based on the calculation of the nature protection, socio-ecological and industrial-ecological indices. A comparative analysis of official statistics and satellite monitoring results revealed significant differences in the results of estimating the area of lost forests. Promising areas for reforestation specified, using methods of Abstract-logical assertions and expert assessments, as well as indicators of the regional project “Conservation of forests of the Kirov region»: provision of state institutions with specialized forestry machinery and equipment, training, increasing the area of artificial reforestation, formation of a reserve of forest seeds, attraction of investments, development of the foundation of logging roads. The implementation of the planned measures will make it possible to use the existing forest resources of the region more effectively, preserving and multiplying this invaluable resource.
