Limburg

In the Province of Limburg, Trees for All is collaborating with Stichting het Limburgs Landschap and Staatsbosbeheer to create a total of 43 hectares of new forest.

Status: Current project

Greening the province of Limburg

A total of over 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’ from the Province of Limburg.

Why is this project needed?

Stichting het Limburgs Landschap and Staatsbosbeheer have both taken a close look at their own land that is suited to creating more forests. Stichting het Limburgs Landschap has designated a total of 30 hectares for forest development and Staatsbosbeheer has designated 13 hectares.

What are we doing?

More than 190,000 trees and shrubs will be planted over a period of three years. The project 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.

Goals

  • Reinforcing and expanding forest areas in the Netherlands
  • Making the landscape more attractive
  • Maintaining, reinforcing and expanding biodiversity
  • Carbon sequestration

This project of Trees for All contributes to several
Sustainable Development Goals

13. Climate action
15. Life on land
17. Partnership for the goals

Where are we planting?

The locations are spread throughout Limburg, in the districts of Venlo, Peel en Maas, Nederweert, Weert, Maasgouw, Eijsden-Margraten and Valkenburg aan de Geul, Venray, Gennep, Horst aan de Maas en Gulpen-Wittem.

Our partners

Het Limburgs Landschap has as its objective protecting valuable landscapes and nature areas in Limburg, including the many monuments that are part of these landscapes. Since 1931 the foundation has protected more than 9.000 hectares of nature, divided over approximately 90 natura areas and heritage sites throughout the entire province of Limburg.

Staatsbosbeheer, the state forestry service, is one of the parties that manages large forest areas in the Netherlands. Since 2012 Trees for All and Staatsbosbeheer work together to increase forest cover in the Netherlands. By now we have worked together on 9 forest projects.

“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!”
