The European part of Russia forms as important and growing part of total timber trade of Europe. While forest resources in the European part of Russia are vast, the accessibility of these resources limits their potential use. Economic accessibility of forest resource can be calculated based on forest inventory data as well as from satellite based forest resource information. The economic accessibility calculated in this study is based on the costs occurring from harvesting, forwarding, road side processing, transportation to lower landing or leskhoz center and reforestation. Comparing the two different forest resource information data there is only a slight difference in the results. It can be assumed that the forest resource data obtained from the satellite images is just as reliable as the traditional forest inventory data. In terms of western economics all forests in the seven leskhozes studied can be considered economically accessible. Further attention should be given to the accuracy of the harvesting costs and to costs occurring in different harvesting chains
