De Pan is a varied nature reserve in North Brabant that includes woodland, heath, meadows, fields and wetland. In collaboration with Staatsbosbeheer, Trees for All is transforming a field of over 6.5 hectares into natural woodland.
In the woodland area De Pan, Trees for All is planting a total of around 32,800 trees on arable land, transforming the former field into a mixed forest. Various types of tree will be planted, including beech, durmast oak, common oak, birch, small-leaved lime, sweet cherry, maple and sweet chestnut. Shrubs like holly and buckthorn will also be planted. This will greatly increase the biodiversity of the area, benefiting animals like hedgehogs, hares and roe deer, and birds like buzzards, golden orioles and nuthatches.
The Netherlands is already a beautiful, green country. Yet Trees for All aims to create a lot more woodland, and cooperates closely with Staatsbosbeheer and other landowners on achieving this goal. More woodland is crucial in our fight to attain our climate goals. Not only do trees capture carbon, but they are also good for the biodiversity of the Netherlands and they serve a recreational purpose, allowing people to experience nature. By donating trees, you help us make the Netherlands a greener and healthier place. The selection of our forestry projects in the Netherlands is based on various quality criteria.

Good forest management in the Netherlands ensures varied and healthy woodland, which is good for biodiversity, recreation and carbon capture.
