The forest of the future - NVTL

The forest of the future

Forest, trees and landscape elements

The Netherlands has lost landscape characteristics since 1900 due to the disappearance of landscape elements and small woodlands. Over 60% has disappeared. Hundreds of thousands of kilometers of landscape elements have been cleared away. Most of it by the way for construction and scaling up in the agricultural area. The woods we now know in the Netherlands are relatively young and largely planted. The oldest forests are found in Brabant and originate from noble ownership.

Forests and trees are, along with soil and water, the basis for the preservation and development of our living environment. One hectare of forest easily stores about 12,000 kg CO2 per year and a tree outside the forest up to about 31.5 kg CO2 per year.

The best imaginable future is green

As a professional community, we want to be accountable for our contribution to the best possible future for the Dutch landscape. Together with you, we are planting a forest for the future. Our future generations and our children can enjoy it, that is what we do it for!

We call upon all NVTL members and relations of our members to sponsor trees for this forest. Will you also contribute to the forest of the future?


Help realize the forest of the future and sponsor one or more trees.

For € 7.50 we will plant a tree with your (company) name.
For € 25,00 we will plant a large sized tree with your (company) name.
The amounts include VAT.

The trees that we plant in the autumn of 2022 are indigenous and endemic. There is a gene bank of local trees from which this plant material is grown. We may tie in with the already completed planting of the multi-stemmed Fladder elm.

Please fill out the form to confirm the sponsorship contribution and to reserve your trees. You will then receive the invoice by email shortly.

What are the planting locations?

The map to the right shows the locations available for planting. Click per location for specific information.

The goal is to plant at least 1 acre of trees, which is approximately 4,000 trees. During our 100 yea anniversary, planting is one of the Event Relay activities. With a sponsorship of 1,000 trees, we can host the first planting day in the fall of 2022.

The first tree has been planted

On April 22, 2021 during World Earth Day and the Landscape Triennial, we have already planted a first tree in the nature reserve de Scheeken, a historic site for landscape architecture. Here R.J. Benthem made a plan to reinforce the medieval landscape with avenue and forest structures.
