What are we doing in Het Groene Woud?
ARK Nature, our project partner, came up with a special and well-considered plan for restoring loamy ground forests. This plan combines the best of two measures: on the one hand we plant new forest in order to extend loamy ground forests, on the other we look at what nature comes up spontaneously in the area. The latter we also refer to as natural regeneration. A unique approach we eagerly support from Trees for All.
This policy requires much knowledge of the area, patience and attention. For that reason we are happy with our long-term co-operation with ARK Foundation. Together we will be able to share our knowledge and follow developments in years to come.
The new plants and shrubs we will plant on former agricultural grounds. This concerns indigenous species of trees and shrubs which are characteristic for loamy ground forests, such as common hornbeam, small-leaved lime and large-leaved lime, fluttering elm, thicket dog rose and common dogwood.
