100 trees for 100 years Wageningen University & Research was an idea from a Wageningen alumnus. Through the 100x100 campagne donations were received. Trees are planted worldwide to create a forest of UniversiTREES. The forest symbolically represents the international connection to Wageningen.
The tree chosen is always a slow-growing species which can live to be very old and which fits into the specific environment. The UniversiTREES will collectively form a lasting reminder of 100 years WUR.
