The biggest, coldest region in Russian Siberia, Yakutia, is struggling with high temperatures for the third month in a row, along with devastating forest fires that have since set more than 1.5 million hectares ablaze.

Konstantin Lashkevich, the CEO of Russia Forest Products, or RFP Group, told reporters Wednesday that once privately owned, woods can be managed and restored for commercial purposes.

Last year forest fires laid waste to an area of over six million hectares.

In recent years the number of forests which contain high quality wood has declined and it can take 80 to 120 years before they return to their natural growth.

In total, 123 fires are expected to burn on an area of more than 885.000 hectares, as the region’s Health and Forestry Ministry has already announced.

In this sense Lashkevich proposed to designate forest areas where it would be possible to cultivate trees for commercial use, modelling those used by New Zealand.
