UniversiTREE in the FoodValley municipalities region, March - April 2019 (various dates)

As part of the UniversiTREE project, municipalities are planting a tree on various dates in the FoodValley region. 100 trees for 100 years Wageningen University & Research was an idea of ​​an alumnus from Wageningen. Worldwide, trees are planted to create a forest of UniversiTREES. With the forest, the worldwide connection with Wageningen is symbolically marked. The choice of tree is always a slowly growing species that can reach a high age and fits in the specific environment. Together, the trees will be a lasting memory of 100 years of WUR.
