ABSTRACT
The paper presents a conceptual approach to risk assessment in the sphere of forest management at a regional level, as well as the results of pilot testing this technique on the example of forest-swamp zone of Western Siberia. The study designated those natural factors from the entire ecosystem, that could be dangerous for the investigated business entity or its activity and might also lead to the degradation of forest ecosystems; the sources, form, structure and parameters of natural hazards were identified. Integrated indicators were developed, characterizing the degree of negative impact from the factors of different origin on the condition of forest stand and the efficiency of logging and forestry operations. The values of ecological and forest resource potential were calculated. Preliminary assessment of risk based on the variable characteristics of the hazards structure was conducted, including the impact on forest management and forest potential levels in the Tomsk Oblast.

Keywords: forest resource potential, risk assessment, forest ecosystem
