Municipal economy complex of the city of Moscow

Landscaping was carried out on the section from the Vladykino metro station to the Moscow Ring Road, as well as on Milashenkov street.

More than 1,600 mature trees and shrubs were planted on the Altufevskoye Highway section from the Vladykino metro station to the Moscow Ring Road and Milashenkov Street.

Altufevskoe highway is a high-traffic highway that passes through the Altufevsky, Bibirevo, Lianozovo and Otradnoye districts in the North-Eastern administrative district of the capital. For such roads, green spaces with a dense crown are chosen, which quickly adapt to the conditions of the metropolis, are not afraid of winds and are frost-resistant.

The Altufevskoe highway section was decorated with 20-year-old linden trees about seven meters high, ornamental apple trees of various varieties 2.5-3 meters high (bush trees with a dense crown in the form of an oval or a ball) and 12-year-old mountain ash trees up to four meters high.

In addition, there were seven-meter-high maples, which are about 18 years old. These are trees with a dense spherical crown. In summer, maple leaves are dark green or red (depending on the variety), and in autumn they turn yellow, orange and burgundy.

Among the shrubs for landscaping the Altufevskoye Highway and Milashenkov Street, experts have chosen various varieties of lilacs. Large trees were planted late in the evening and at night to minimize inconvenience to motorists.

Trees and shrubs for planting in Moscow are grown in special nurseries. They are replanted every three to four years to form a stable root system. Plants are planted in planting pits with fertile soil, at the bottom of which a drainage layer is laid. The trunks are covered with a reed sheath to protect against mechanical damage.

As previously reported by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Moscow Government for housing and communal services and improvement Peter Biryukov, more than 16 thousand trees and shrubs will be planted along the outgoing highways this fall. They purify the air, protect from street noise and road dust, and provide shade on hot days.
