The journal of the meeting of the Petrograd Forest Institute has a record on April 29, 1920 about the organization of the Department of Forest Economics. This is the date of birth of the first forestry department in the country. Since then it was successfully working up to the present time at the Forestry Technical University. Originally, the new department had separated from the department of forest inventory and taxation. Professor M.M.Orlov was its first head. First forest economics study course has started simultaneously. It reflected new for the world revolutionary forestry economic relations, built on exclusive public forest property. One of the first results of the department’s activities was the fundamental essay by M.M. Orlov on Forest Inventory in Modern Practice (1924). The essay was devoted primarily to the formulation of the economic foundations of forest management.

Since the mid-1920s, the Forest Institute has begun training of a part of forestry students in forestry as well as engineering specialization for the rapidly growing timber and woodworking industries. It required a significant expansion of the range and content of scientific approaches of the Department of Forest Economics. In 1924 the department was divided into two: the Department of forestry arrangement (headed by Prof. M.M.Orlov) and the Department of forest economics, headed by Prof. S.A. Bogoslovsky, who for the first time created a special course «Forest Economics».

During the period of industrialization of the country, the forestry department faced problems of formulating a strategy for developing forestry and forest industries, matching the forest management with the theory and practice of economic planning. Industrialization has attracted great attention to the economic training of specialists in all branches of the national economy. In January 1930 the Forest Institute was reorganized in Forestry Technical Academy due to the significant expansion and diversification of demand for qualified engineers and economists for the growing forestry, woodworking, pulp, paper and wood chemical industries. In the same year, the Forest economics faculty was established on the basis of the Forest economics department. Later on, it became engineer-economic faculty, then faculty of economics and management. Since 2015, it is Institute on management and economics of forest sector, one of four core institutes of the Saint Petersburg State Forestry University. Thus, the Department of Forest Economics is an institute-forming department, from which the Institute was born and on which it was built for decades.

The students research (Russian abbreviation NIRS) has traditionally been an integral part of the scientific activity of the Department of Forest Policy, Economics and Management (DFPEM). NIRS is an indicator of scientific potential of the department. Research helps young specialists to get ready for the qualified job. Research activities reveal creative potential of students and form their scientific thinking. Management of the student research work is carried out in the framework of scientific school and directions of the department. It is implemented by the faculty staff. The research results have practical importance. They are oriented to solving modern problems of the forest economy, politics and management. Research components are incorporated in the graduate theses. Many of our student research papers are recognized by international, federal, regional skills competitions, academic Olympics, contests and conferences. Research materials of the student reports are published in scientific proceedings and are marked with diplomas and awards. The students awards and prizes at international and national contests and competitions confirm the high level of educational and scientific work of the Department of Forest Policy, Economics and Management.
