Trees Were Planted at Yasnaya Polyana


On April 20, 2018 the next stage in the Let‘s Preserve Yasnaya Polyana for Future Generations program took place at the estate. Deputies of the Tula Regional Duma planted 150 young fir trees in the Firs Near Grumant forest. Photos >>>

The Firs Near Grumant forest is located on the Western border of the Yasnaya Polyana Estate. This area was planted with pines and firs in 1898-1900s by Leo Tolstoy’s wife Sophia. In 2011-2013, the forest suffered greatly from the bark-beetle outbreak, and most of the trees died.

The Let‘s Preserve Yasnaya Polyana for Future Generations program has been implemented in the historic forests of the estate annually since 2007. During the last ten years, 4,500 larches, birches, pines, firs, and oaks have been planted.
