EXPANSION OF HIKE TORATE OF. EAST"SIBERIAN LOGGING

he. Chief Director.ilc of East Siberian Logging, tho Chief Directorate of Far Eastern Logging, and the Chiefof Sakhalin Logging, of thc Ministry of the Timber Industry have been.engaged in organisational expansion programs. for expansion has been provided through intensiveof local.labor and the relocation of logging enterprises from western European USSR,

The Chief Directorate of East Siberian Logging probablythe largest productive potential o! any of the eight chiefof logging subordinate to the Ministry of the Timber Induatry. It ia thefecently expanded chiefof logging which makes significant contributions to theof other geographic regions.

The Chief Directorate of East Siborlan Logging has consistently failed to fulfillroduction assignments, even though tiieuc annual plans remained almost static for thehewhich contributed most heavily to ihciic plan failures were transport difficulties, inadequate housing, mechanization and equip -mcnt shortcomings, and resource competition.

Although railroad car shortages atill exist in East Siberia, the development of river transport in the Angara Basin will permit the Chief Directorate of East Siberian Logging and the Chief Directorate of West Siberian Logging to exchange primary consumers. Such an arrangement will result in considerably shorter rail hauls anda tremendous freight burden from the Trans-Siberian Railroad.

In absolute terms, percentage figures for the mechanized skidding and hauling of timber have little meaning because the operational details of logging in East Siberia are not known. It does appear, however, that allocations of tractors to the ChiefDirectorate of East Siberian Logging have been periodicallypostponed, or cancelled to the detriment of timber The Chief Directorate itself has been guilty of poorand maintenance of what equipment is on hand.

HI. Attempts to Eliminate the Factors Contributing to Plan Failures.

The Russians have made extensive efforts to overcome the obstacles to plan fulfillment in the East Siberia timber indusv try, but several of these efforts have not been very successful Thc following is an assessment of these efforts.

A. Transport.

The East Siberian railroad car shortage may be well on Us way toward being alleviated by meansimpledramatic) logistical move. Indications point toward an exchange of consumers between the Chief Directorate of West Siberian Logging and the Chief Directorate of East Siberian Logging.

The East Siberian Woodworking Trust, the chiefof prefabricated houses to the Chief Directorate of East Siberian Logging, is being expanded. hreeorking plants were transferred from East Siberian logging trusts to tho East Siberian Woodworking Thisof the Ministry's local woodworking facilities under one trusttop in the direction of local industrial maturity, at least in the organisational sense.

The recent shifting of timber transshipmentfrom the East Siberian Woodworking trust to the Angara Timber Floating Trust may release additional manpower for sawmilling and woodworking and will permit the Woodworking Trust to concentrate on basic production.

Woodworking facilities are being expanded and modernised at several plants of the woodworking trust. Engineers and skilled workers are being schooled in assembly-line methods and wood-lamination As yet, none of these efforts appear to have affected production of prefabricated houses.

C. Mechanization and Equipment.

which followed Stalin'suring, the second .quarter ofwo. logging trusts (theTayshet and Irkutsk Transport

These transfers arc significant steps toward concentrationl logging operations in the hands of the Ministry of theIndustry. oncentration in the Irkutsk area is highly desirable from the Soviet point of view because it provides three principal economic advantages.

The transfer of logging enterprises of the Ministry of the River Fleet to thc Chief Directorate of East Siberian Logging willnrovide an opportunity for better control of uti-lizationin the Bratsk-Ust1 Kut'forests that is, commercial-grade timber will be processed for commercial output, and. the remainder will be pr occBSed for firewood.

The above case for concentration of loggingwould apply only to areas of industrial-strategiccentrations where the local forests mustariety of wood products to manyor example,ilitary firewood enterprise located at Providenlya to the Ministry of tho Timber Industry for the sake of uniformity would serve no economic function.

Further, assumption of logging responsibility' the Ministry of thc Timber Industry would not run counter to the efficient practice of attaching one of itsocal construction project to facilitate timber supply.

TV. Intentions,-Capabilities, and Vulnerabilities.

It is apparent that the Soviet planners realised that their regional expansion program would be in the nature of anestment since there were no marked increases in annualfor the three eastern chief directorates of logging throughout the period of their

This investment was based in part upon conservation principles. Annual log production in the western areas was far in excess of local annual forest growth, whereas eastern loggers were cuttingmall percentage of local annual growth. During World War'O, western timber was cutfor defense production and the postwareffort dictated extremely heavy cutting of western estoration demands had tapered off, but the Great Projects aad western industrial expansion raised new demands upon the western timber supply. Thc Russians were faced with the choice ofontinuing to exploit western forests at the expense of completely exhausting western

In the case of the Chief Directorate of East Siberianlargest producer of the three eastern chief directoratesthe planners did not realize how much of an invest- washe Chief Directorate of Eastconsistently failed to meet even the static planto it during its expansion period. .

V. Conclusions.

U The Chief Directorate of East Siberian Logging, the Chief Directorate of Far Eastern Logging, and the Chiefof Sakhalin Logging havo been greatly expanded0 by re basing logging enterprises and transferringand personnel from western European USSR.

The Chief Directorate of East Siberian Logging is the only one-of thesedirdctorates'of logging thatignificant contribution to other regions of the USSR, and it probably represents tbo greatest potential of any ofhief directorates of logging of the Ministry of the Timber Industry.

The Chief Directorate of East Siberian Logging did not even meet the modest production goals assigned to it during the expansion period,f problems associated with transportation, housing, mechanization and equipment, and resource competition.

lthough rail road-.car shortages still exist in East Siberia, the timber transport situation is being relieved to some degree by shortening rail hauls through tho development of riverand simplification of product distribution.

In dealing with the problems associated with plan failure, the greatest advancement has been made in the area -of resource competition. Logging enterprises of theof the River Fleet and Rail Transport have* transferred to thc Chief Directorate of East Siberian Logging.

This monopolistic trend will lead to better forest utilization and more efficient planning of logging operations in East Siberia.

It is believed that long-range Soviet conservation policy and strategic-economic development plans for the east dictated this investment.
