We have our own Energy Challenges FOREST! Hey, it's really true. It has been in existence since spring 2022 and can even be visited in Hardenberg in Overijsel.

“The Energy Challenges FOREST”. We are very proud of it!

Now it is only very small, there are only 30 trees left, but the intention is that together we ensure that it will become a beautiful large forest. How can you help? By clicking on the link, choosing a tree, paying and the Treemendo Foundation will allow our forest to grow little by little in the next planting season.

We will of course keep you informed afterwards about how our forest is doing. On the special website, you can also take a digital look at the EC BOS on the interactive map.

As Energy Challenges, we are working every day to make young people more aware of their energy consumption ,and we teach them to use energy as sustainably as possible. Save as much CO2 as possible by using less gas, electricity and water.

CO2 that is released anyway, which we cannot do without energy, can also be stored in trees. In this way, we try to contribute to a better living environment.

With our 30 trees that have already been planted, we have already captured 3 tons of CO2, with which we compensate for 3 plane flights, 10 m2 of sea ice and 1333 km by car and create beautiful new nature. That's a good start, isn't it?

Will you help us plant a beautiful new forest?

Companies or organizations that want to compensate for their CO2 emissions are also very welcome. If you send us an email, we will calculate how many trees are needed as compensation ,and we will send an invoice for the purchase of those trees.

The Beech is a naturally large tree that you are guaranteed to be impressed by. It is a patient tree known for its supple silvery bark, short trunk and large crown which, when given space and sunlight, grows well in height and width. They don't say the Beech in it for nothing ;)

White Elm

The European white elm with its glossy dark green leaves is relatively rare and likes to be part of a cool and mixed deciduous forest. The tree is a picky 'eater' with a clear preference for water- and nutrient-rich soil.

Bird Cherry

Beautiful and known for the delicious almond-scented blossom, the bird cherry. In the spring, many insects like to take a walk to snack on this blossom full of nectar.

Are you a real water rat? Search no further! The Alder is the perfect match for you. This tree loves water. The wood of the alder becomes stronger when it grows in water-saturated soil. Handy in a country like the Netherlands, of course. Did you know that for that reason a large part of Venice was built on Elspalen?

We all know them, hazelnuts! The Hazel is the tree that grows the nuts that we as humans, but also squirrels and mice, like so much. Not so fond of nuts? It seems that a hazelnut protects against evil spirits.. No guarantee though!

The European Hornbeam is relatively drought and wind resistant and also fairly tolerant of climate changes. A good match for the Netherlands, a country with a lot of wind and wetness.
