BAM plants trees in the Netherlands
Rain and heavy rainfall did not keep around 100 Dutch colleagues away to plant #BAM150 trees at the Hollandse Hout, near Lelystad. They even brought their family and children along last Wednesday. Everyone worked hard and had a great time together.
In total they’ve planted the final 1,000 young trees of the total number of 10.000 at this location. These trees are part of the 150,000 trees BAM plants all over the world in celebration of its 150th birthday. Arno Kampstra, IT process manager, came with his 3,5-year old son Fintan and said: “I fully support this beautiful initiative of BAM to help preserve the planet. It felt good to do my bit in reducing CO2 by planting some of these trees with my son. However young he is, I want him to know about the importance of it and always enjoy spending quality time with him. ‘It was great fun, ” says Fintan to date.’ ‘Little chilly though…’”
BAM collaborates with Trees for All to have 100,000 trees planted in reforestation projects in Bolivia and Uganda. In addition 50,000 trees will be planted in our European home countries. In November an additional 10,000 of those trees will be planted in Waalse Bos, near Utrecht.
