Russia has the largest forest area in the world. In fact, Russia's forest land accounts for about one-fifth of the world's forest land, or about 800 million hectares. At present, the total volume of wood in the world is about 380 billion cubic meters; and Russia's wood stocks are more than 80 billion cubic meters, accounting for about a quarter of the world's total wood stock.
Russia’s forest resources have been growing. However, due to the large area of forests in the cold Siberia and the Far East, trees grow slowly, so the growth of all Russian forest resources is not large. However, because of the large base of forest resources in Siberia and the Far East, the net growth of forest resources in Russia is still considerable.
