Our ambassadors

Get to know the ambassadors of Trees for All. They each have their own way of helping us create more forests in the world. Trees for All also has a patron: Princess Margarita.


Princess Margarita

HRH Margarita Princess de Bourbon de Parme is our patroness. She fulfils this role in a special way. She wants to make more people aware of the importance of trees and motivate them to plant trees – something she is doing herself as well! Through her company De Parme Design – where she designs jewellery that is inspired by nature – the princess supports various Trees for All projects. “It allows me to give something back to nature, which is an endless source of inspiration to me.”


Sanne Vogel

Sanne Vogel is a director, writer and actress. But most of all, she is someone with a passion for sustainability. She worries about the future of our earth. Planting trees gives her hope. That’s why Sanne has become an ambassador for Trees for All. Together with us, she wants to leave behind a green earth for future generations, including her own twins.


Melissa Drost

You know her from TV series such as Goede Tijden, Slechte Tijden, Flikken Maastricht and as Juf Roos. She also starred in the musical Soldaat van Oranje. Dutch actress Melissa Drost has had a great love for trees since childhood. “It was instilled in me at an early age how important it is to treat nature with respect and love,” she says. She wants to impart that to her own daughter as well. “Trees are vital for all of us.” That is why she has been a proud ambassador of Trees for All since 2023.
