A community forest in Oudenburg.
The ‘Mandelwijk’ is a social housing project that went through a recent renovation. The city Council of Oudenburg has chosen SUGi to help further restore the community with a Miyawaki forest.
The planting of these forests is part of the implementation of the City Council’s ‘Boomplusplan’. With the Mandelwijk Forest we aim to improve our biodiversity, urban resilience and create a pleasant and healthy living environment.
Together with the schools of Oudenburg, we will plant forests to leave a sustainable world for future generations.
Forest Maker Nicolas de Brabandère
“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
