The Committee for City Improvement of St. Petersburg made the decision on the resumption of planting trees on Nevsky prospect along Gostiny Dvor.
"This territory is a favorite meeting place for citizens, a center of attraction for tourists and almost the only green island on the main highway of St. Petersburg. We want to preserve it for residents and visitors of our city. Unfortunately, the difficult environmental situation significantly affects the state and survival of green spaces here,” said Sergey Malinin, the Chairman of The Committee for City Improvement of St. Petersburg.
In addition, it is reported that currently employees of the garden and park economy are considering a plan for planting new trees on this site. In addition, experts want to carry out work on replacing the soil in the planting areas, as well as prescribe a scheme of feeding and winter shelter measures.
