The forest management plans are usually paid by the forest owner itself or, in some cases, by the government .A serious problem of the forest management planning is a high price of the plans given mostly by an enormous share of labour in the field on the work. The expenses paid by the owners lead to a lobbying for lowering a quality and content reduction of the plans. Such a trends are dangerous because they can cause difficulties in the sustainability of forest ecosystems development in the future. A solution can be found in searching for new ways haw to elaborate the forest management plans using modern digital technologies. An objective of the prepared project is to find and propose a new technology for a cost and productivity effective elaboration of forest management plans based on combination of digitised data from previous forest management plans, digitised data from the forest management records, growth models, new technology data from the remote sensing of the Earth.
