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.
