The Parliament Park of Armenia was enriched with a new kind of tree, sequoia. On June 11, the initiator of the tree planting organized in the public part of the NA Park was the surgeon-oncologist Vahagn Hambardzumyan, who received his education and worked in the U.S. and now returning to the Motherland, brought with him 50 seedlings of sequoia tree.
