The project

Stichting het Limburgs Landschap and Staatsbosbeheer have both taken a close look at their own land that is suited to creating more forests. The locations are spread throughout Limburg, in the districts of Venlo, Peel en Maas, Nederweert, Weert, Maasgouw, Eijsden-Margraten, Valkenburg aan de Geul, Venray, Gennep, Horst aan de Maas and Gulpen-Wittem. Stichting het Limburgs Landschap has designated a total of 30 hectares for forest development and Staatsbosbeheer has designated 13 hectares.

More than 190,000 trees and shrubs will be planted over a period of three years. This new forest is part of the ‘1 Million Trees Action Plan’ by the Province of Limburg. The project also contributes to achieving the national goals set by the Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature and Food Quality, to create a further 37,000 hectares of forest in the Netherlands by 2030. The project makes an important contribution to improving biodiversity, making the landscape more attractive and liveable, and offsetting carbon emissions.

‘Many forests in North and Middle Limburg were planted on poor, sandy soil as coniferous forests for the production of wood. Thanks to Trees for All, Stichting het Limburgs Landschap now has the opportunity to plant varied deciduous forests on richer soil. It’s a wonderful boost to nature!’ According to Wilfred Alblas, Directeur Limburgs Landschap.
