Problems of using vegetation indices determined on base of remote sensing data from space to assess the industrial impact of chemical pollution on the state of conifer trees as bioindicators in taiga zone are considered. Studies has been carried out in the zone of impact of flare for gas burning located on the Priobskoe oil field. A comparative analysis of data of ground bioindicative research and vegetation indices calculated from satellite images Landsat is performed. Analysis has shown acceptable correspondence the results of remote assessment of forest vegetation changes to data of ground bioindicative research.
