We’re planting again!
To celebrate its 150th anniversary, BAM is planting 150,000 trees. And… we’re closing in on our target! With 113,314 trees on the counter, the new planting season is just about to begin. Over the next few months, BAM volunteers in the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland and the United Kingdom will be rolling up their sleeves to dig in and plant the remaining trees.
