A large square of relic plants from the Far East will be planted in Vladivostok as part of the Eastern Economic Forum. The project is supported by Yury Trutnev, Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation and Plenipotentiary Representative of the President of the Russian Federation in the Far Eastern Federal District.

"The Far East is a unique territory of our country. The creation of the park is yet another opportunity to remind people of this and to draw attention to the need to cherish our natural treasures and to preserve our unique nature and fauna. I also hope that with the planting of public gardens, another programme will begin, so that more parks, more green areas and projects to create a comfortable urban environment will appear in the Far Eastern cities. I hope that one of the most active participants in this movement will be Vladivostok, as the capital of the Far East. After all, it is from this city that many participants and guests of the Eastern Economic Forum begin their acquaintance with the Russian Far East", noted Yury Trutnev.

Federal ministers, governors of regions of the Far Eastern Federal District, business representatives, and the Roscongress Foundation will participate in the planting of the square.

On 3 September, the first 100 Far Eastern endemics will be planted. Among them are Zibold magnolia, Japanese yew, Manchurian apricot, Schlippenbach rhododendron, juniper and others. The garden will be located at the landscape zone on the shore of Ajax Bay. Each participant of tree planting will receive a certificate indicating the geographical location of the planted trees.

All the seedlings for the park were grown by the Botanical Garden Institute of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences. Each plant is representative of ancient species which grew on the planet thousands and even millions of years ago. Some of the species have remained only on Primorye's territory.

In the future, specialists from the Botanical Garden will take care of the seedlings to ensure that they take root and grow healthily.

The park is being created at the initiative of the Vladivostok city administration and with the financial participation of the park's platinum partners JSC UMGK (OAO Vostochny Port), PJSC Sberbank and JSC Nakhodka Mineral Fertilizers Plant.

The first part of the project will be implemented this year. And in 2022 an entire park will appear on the adjacent territory with another 900 relict plants. The planting will also take place under the patronage of the Botanical Garden Institute of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

In order to purchase plants for the second phase, guests and participants in the EEF will be invited to take part in an auction, during which an amount can be paid to purchase specific plants, which will then take their place in the Far Eastern Relic Park.
