The paper presents analytical reasoning on the existing Russian trends in the occurrence and prospects of forest management in small-scale plots of renewal of forest resources and maintenance of ecological balance, based on the inductive method of logistics construction of the available technologies development and low resource-saving mechanization. Inductive conclusions in the work are the implementation of some imaginary interpolation in the organization of resource-saving environmentally friendly technology based on a set of conditional experimental points and the composition of a verbal description of the invention. The real basis of the research is the current state of leased forestry enterprises in the context of the Forest Code in Russia, as well as long-term plans for the development of the Far East territories by providing small-scale plots to citizens of the country. The author illustrates the implementation of an inductive research method from a disjointed concept, as a system of discrete views, to a developed meaningful approach to the creation of a computer-technological complex for solving problems of increasing the resource-saving and ecological efficiency of forest management in small-scale plots. We use our results of theoretical and experimental work as initial data, as well as some achievements of postgraduate students. Significant period for the practical testing of author's ideas (from the 1990s to the 2000s) is considered. The article presents descriptions of the implemented options for devices and structures of small-scale forestry units; gives an idea of the potential performance capabilities of small-scale mechanization. Appropriate illustrative materials and some quantitative estimates of the results of the work done are provided.
