Pitsunda Pine was Planted on Sands of Vyoshenskaya on Arbor Day

18.10.2016

On October 15, the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov held Arbor Day. Schoolchildren from the Sholokhov, Bokovsky and Oblivsky districts, Kashary, Millerovo and Novocherkassk of the Rostov Region, from the Volgograd and Voronezh regions together with the Museum workers planted over 1200 trees in the forest park “Forest Pearl of Eurasia”.

700 saplings were grown at the Museum-Reserve of M.A.Sholokhov (catalpa, Acer Campestral, honey locust, mulberry white and black, Caspian willow, locust adhesive, mountain ash, Swedish ash, ash Pennsylvania and others). About 500 plants were given by the Administration of “Krasnodarles” (English oak, red oak, beech, pecan, Juglans nigra, Pitsunda pine).

Certainly, all the plants will be a good complement to the unique forest park, but a special value is Pitsunda pine, an endangered and rare species. This is the most ancient representative of the vegetable world of tertiary flora, which survived the ice age and continues to thrive on the Black Sea coast of the Caucasus and on the southern coast of the Crimea.

We hope, this undemanding, wind and drought resistant plant will take root in the Don earth and will become a worthy landscape decoration.

All the schools taking part in Arbor Day are awarded letters of thanks.
