The Waalse Wood and Biesland Forest

Trees for All is working together with Staatsbosbeheer to sustainably manage the restoration of the Waalse and Biesland forests.


Restoration of Dutch woodland affected by ash dieback

The Biesland Forest is situated between Delft and Zoetermeer and is a key green oasis in an urban area. The Waalse wood is a village wood in the rural area of Houten in Utrecht. Much of the forest has been affected by ash dieback which has killed a great many trees.

The project

Much of the forest has been affected by ash dieback which has killed a great many trees. These trees are being felled to prevent dangerous situations. Trees for All is working together with Staatsbosbeheer for the sustainable restoration of these woods by planting up new plots with mixed forestry. We’ve opted for indigenous tree species such as oak, common oak, linden trees, willow, hazel and sweet cherry. Planting so many different varieties creates additional food sources for animals, such as berries, seeds and nuts. Trees for All and Staatsbosbeheer are restoring a total of more than 23 hectares of sick forest in the two areas, transforming them into nature reserves with healthy and diverse woodland that’s plant and animal-friendly and ideal for recreation.

The Netherlands needs more woodland

The Netherlands is a green and pleasant land. Even so, Trees for All wants to create far more woodland together with Staatsbosbeheer and other landowners. More forest is crucial in our battle to reach the required climate targets. Trees not only provide the necessary carbon capture, they also benefit Dutch biodiversity and contribute to recreation and a love of nature. By donating trees, you can help us make the Netherlands greener and healthier. In selecting Dutch forestry projects, we use quality criteria. Want to know more? Take a look at our main principles.

Good woodland management in the Netherlands results in varied and healthy forest that’s good for biodiversity, recreation and absorption of carbon dioxide.
