I didn't study it in depth, as it seemed to me a new-age movement like
those which are many in the west.
But from my superficial study I could make the following conclusions.
The story as a whole is a fake, but is based on some actual facts and
teachings. When aquainting with the teaching I noted that some points
make sense and some not (at least, I didn't like them). There is a
women in Russia who asserts that Megre has stolen the basic doctrine
from her and added many his own additions. Noteworthy these were very
those points which I dodn't like, so I have reasons to believe her.
>From those who had business with Megre there came reports that he is
just an able businessman, and not very honest one.
One of our oldest theosophists who travelled very much over Siberia
said that the author never was in Siberian forests, as he describes
So we can consider him as a kind of Lobsang Rampa. Though the latter
never was in Tibet or contacted mahatmas, he has spread some of
theosophical teaching with his own changes and additions.

The planting of cedars was the positive effect of that teaching.
I always wondered why we have on cedars near Moscow (climat seems to
prermit them). It occured that apparently no one planted them because
they give nuts after many years only and he will never enjoy them. As
now people are planting them from the religious considerations, not
for nuts only, we may hope for the nuts (in the lext lives of course).
For our readers living in southern countries I have to explain that we
talk about not those cedars which grow near Midterranean and are
depicted on the flag of Lebanon but those of Siberia, which are more
scientifically called "cedar pines". Unlike the former, the latter
give nuts, very small but tasty.
