(EN) The Lintula Larch Forest was established by order of Peter the Great to supply the Russian Navy with shipbuilding timber. Ferdinand Gabriel Fockel, a German forest expert, established the oldest stands in 1738–1750 with seedlings of European Larch (Larix decidua) from the province of Arkhangelsk. Since then the area of the forest has expanded and currently the total area of larch is 55.9 ha (23.5 ha of the 'old stands' established before 1851 still remain).

(RU) Начало Линдуловской лиственничной роще было положено в 1738 году по ранее изданному указу Петра I, когда на месте бывшей пашни были сделаны первые посевы семян лиственницы, собранных в Архангельской губернии. Первые два участка старейших культур лиственницы созданы в 1738 г. лесным знателем, форстмейстером её императорского величества Фердинандом Габриелем Фокелем с учениками Иваном Киприяновым, Матвеем Алшанским, Федотом Старостиным, Петром Павловым. Старые культуры сохранились на площади 23,5 га и насчитывают более 4000 деревьев, высотой 38 — 42 м с диаметром ствола 49 — 52 см. (на высоте груди). А отдельные лиственницы — до 100 см.
