This is what we’ve achieved

Bentwoud is young woodland situated in the centre of the Green Heart between Zoetermeer and Boskoop. In the last few years Trees for All has helped to plant trees in this extensive nature and recreational area. Although Bentwoud is still being developed, it is already home to many rare birds, butterflies and plants. The woodland is managed by state agency Staatsbosbeheer.

Alongside the sponsored forest that was planted with aid of donations from companies such as ASN Bank and Arriva, runs Leiderschapslaan – leadership avenue. This avenue forms part of the Natural Leadership programme. Through this programme Trees for All offers leading organisations and sustainability campaigners a platform to share their visions with one another and the public. Participants in the programme include Princess Laurentien of Oranje-Nassau. Her tree and those of sustainability icons such as Wubbo Ockels, Al Gore, Maurits Groen, Reinier van den Berg, Philip de Roo and Marc Cornelissen have gained a tangible and simultaneously symbolic place on leadership avenue. Alongside these personal tribute trees other trees have been planted for and by leading organisations and companies.
