The State Russian Museum and the Summer Garden, which is part of it, which was founded under Peter I during the founding of the Northern capital of Russia, have been implementing the program “All-Russian oak grove of Peter the Great” for several years. Every autumn in the Summer Garden there is a collection of acorns from the Oak of Peter the Great. (This oak is more than 360 years old; it was planted in the Summer Garden in October 1708 as an adult tree). Collected acorns germinate in pots in the Summer Garden for up to three years – a viable and favorable age for planting in open ground. Each oak seedling has a certificate and a number on the interactive map of the Russian Museum. They are planted not only in Russia, but also in five countries – Germany, Great Britain, France, Estonia, Armenia.
