A bee friendly forest in Oudenburg.
By creating a bee-friendly forest we hope to create a landing space for pollinators.
Bee populations are diminishing rapidly and alarmingly. By creating a tiny forest of specific native trees that flower successionally, we can offer the bees an almost continual food source as well as their favoured trees for winter hibernation.

“We aim to plant a tree for every resident of Oudenburg in 2021. That’s 10,000 trees. Through the creation of two Miyawaki Forests with SUGi we are nearing our goal rapidly.”
— Anthony Dumarey, Mayor Oudenburg
“Ours is a long family history tied to the Flemish Polders so I’m thrilled about the opportunity to bring two SUGi Urban Forests to Oudenburg. By this, we also hope to inspire adjacent villages in Flandres.”
— Elise Van Middelem, founder SUGi
