Summary: The results of the processing of satellite images by means of the amount of harvesting in the area of Atleka (the north of the Vologda region) are presented. A significant decline in logging for a period of about 70 years (1960 - 2013.) was revealed. It is connected with the reduction in the area occupied by mature and overmature coniferous forests. At present, the proportion of intact old-growth forests (HCVF) in the district is about 5% of the region area.
