Do you too want the Netherlands of the future to be green, with beautiful old trees and varied woodlands?

Then read on….

We think our trees should be put on the map - literally! The value of trees to us is immeasurable and they deserve protection, attention and care. It is vital that we should share information about how trees can help us, enabling us to improve the ways we look after them and allowing everyone to make a contribution.

Hier voor is er nu een app! 


Did you know that trees help to clean the air we breathe, that they protect dusty soils during droughts, and that they trap rainwater and reduce flooding? They contribute both to our physical and mental well-being; they create the places we love to visit and are also an essential factor in our everyday environment.

Dan hebben we het nog niet eens gehad over de verschillende dieren, planten en schimmels die afhankelijk van onze bomen zijn. Bomen zorgen voor onze gezondheid en  diversiteit van onze natuur en daar kunnen we nog zoveel over leren
Klik hier voor de mobiele app kun je bomen verrijken met foto, verhaal en meting. 

Wanneer jou boom nog niet op de kaart staat dan kun je ons mailen voor instructies.. 

Zie hieronder de site waarop we alle bomen willen gaan weergeven. Klik hier om de site met details te bekijken te bekijken

Boomverzorgers en eigenaren kunnen veel efficiënter en effectiever bijhouden hoe het is gesteld met de gezondheid en het onderhoud van de boom. Of hoe bepaalde bomen & bossen ons kunnen helpen bij de klimaatveranderingen en waar nog ruimte en noodzaak  is om bomen te planten.


Onze Bomen app is een open platform om informatie te delen en te verzamelen.

By placing all our trees on one integrated map, in which information and management needs are shared in a straightforward manner, we can understand more about the importance of trees, to our nature and our culture. Until now no single platform has existed on which such information could be shared and retrieved.

With your help and the help of many others, the Trees on the Map foundation will remedy this state of affairs. We provide an open source map as a forum where all the pieces of our knowledge about our trees can be put together, enriching each other and offering new, shared insights both for the professional and for interested amateurs.

The foundation launches with a system covering the whole of the Netherlands, with the addition of other countries to follow soon. All of the publicly accessible data about our trees is fed straight into the map, and will be supplemented by the information provided by its users.

Our aim is for everyone to learn more about our trees by pooling their knowledge, allowing everyone to enjoy them and also to preserve them by learning to manage them in better ways – and to contribute to the greening of the Netherlands.
