My Passion for Trees                 


© Copyright Hanneke de Bruijn

Huge, big, ancient old trees of at least 1000 or 2000 years old are my passion. I am very fascinated and inspired by them. I admire them and have a big respect and love for them, they are my friends. You can always find cover and comfort by the trees. Trees are an inspiration in the landscape because of the uniqueness and beauty. During my many travellings in England I visit all kind of ancient old and amazing trees and I haven't seen them all. On this website you can find all of my passion.

Since September the 4th, 2017 till june 2020,  I worked as a Tree Safety Consultance. First a 4 month training and a year apprenticeship. I work for de Boominspecteurs as a Treeinspector.     

Pollutants, such as particulate matter, exceeded especially along busy roads. Trees are effective in capturing harmful substances. A mature beech has 13 times more capacity to ‘catch’ particulate matter from the air than a young beech. A beech tree with a diameter of 20 cm is equal to what a car has produced of particulate matter, after 1800 km. Not only a beech tree can do it, Any other trees will do it.

If you can not plant a tree in your garden:

A fully ivy-covered wall of 16-17 m2 remove as much particulate matter as an average city tree.
