The present study analyzes the forest industry cluster of the Tyumen Region in Siberia and proposes an approach to cluster analysis based on the development of a generic model.
Aim. The study aims to compartmentalize and analyze the forestry industry using the methodology of generic cluster model formation.
Tasks. To describe the current state of the forestry industry in the Tyumen region; to identify major corporate participants and compartmentalize them into the units of the generic cluster model; to develop a forest industry cluster of the Tyumen Region and to determine its strengths and weaknesses.
Methods. This study uses the method of formation and analysis of a generic cluster model.
Results. Based on the analysis of the companies in the forest industry of the Tyumen Region, four units are identified: cluster core, suppliers, consumers, and supporting infrastructure. These units are then used to build a generic cluster model, and its strengths and weaknesses are analyzed.
Conclusion. A generic model of the forestry industry cluster of the Tyumen Region is developed. The four units comprising the model are analyzed. The strengths and weaknesses of the cluster are identified. The current state of the cluster is assessed.

Keywords: cluster, forest industry, generic cluster model, consumer, buyer, supportinginfrastructure
