Biodiversity & ecosystems
Biodiversity and ecosystems
Biodiversity, as the word itself describes it, stands for the variation in the forest. From the smallest organisms to the largest trees, every element has its added value.
An ecosystem is the sum total of all plants and animals in their specific habitat. We mainly look at the interactions between all organisms and their environment (think of soil, water supply, air and climate).
Diversity is important
If we want a healthy forest, biodiversity plays an important role. The more species there are in a forest, the higher its productivity is. An extra reason to include increasing biodiversity as a spearhead in our mission.
By alternating between open and densely vegetated areas under, around and between our native trees, a beautiful variety of plants, organisms and animals is created in our forests. In this way we strive for a nice balance in the new ecosystem.
