The former name of the river is Lintulovka, hence the name of the grove. The grove was founded in 1738 when on the place of former plowed field seed of larch, which were gathered in Arkhangelsk Province, were sown; the new additional sowing and planting have been continuing for many years (in 1743-50, 1773, 1805-20 and others). At present the grove consists of a few parcels of different ages which are located on the both banks of the river. The birch forests, grey alder forest are typical for flood plain of the Roschinka River, somewhere there is the undergrowth and ephebic trees of lindens, maples, elms and hazels.
