Abstract: In research of boreal forests conservation and sustainable development mechanism in the climate changes conditions the main aspect is a study of various natural forces and the society, interests of different segments of population, conditions and productivity of forest ecosystems, threats removal dealing with growing of new forest making tree species and spruce stands drying and their interference. To achieve and protect sustainable development of boreal forests there is a need to arrange monitoring of boreal forests conditions. Its goal is to establish the scientific rationale for the required protection level, conservation and regeneration of boreal forests, and their use level. A new synthetic approach to sustainable development of the regional timber cluster evaluation (the Komi republic) is worked out, it considers the system integrity. A new methodology of sustainable development level calculation is introduced; it is based on a synthetic model of the timber cluster duality: forestry ? forest use and basic public relationship indicators. Conditions, opportunities and limits of sustainable development of boreal forests are considered. Methodical and practical schemes of sustainable regional timber cluster development evaluation are approved. Possible mechanisms of results use in the regional forest sector management practice are described, as well as sustainable development planning at the regional and company level. Integrated model of the timber cluster sustainable development and methods of boreal forests changes evaluation, required for its practical implementation are suggested to be used as the basic tool for the solution of a wide range of regional problems in strategic planning and sustainable management in boreal forests. One of important goals of forest planning and sustainable forest management is the evaluation of the resources and ecological potential of boreal forests, provision of balanced use and boreal forests regeneration, their evaluation and forecasting. The basic model of the forest cluster dynamic provides the possibility to achieve that goal, which has certain forest management strategies, forest use regimes and regeneration. By each fixed forest use and regeneration level a potential evaluation of the timber cluster sustainable development might be calculated, it's based on the dual optimization method that is a Cartesian product and ecological and economical limitations system that reflect the timber cluster sustainable development criteria and indicators.
