Trees as a solution
Trees are central to Van den Berk Nurseries as a green solution. For example, planting trees in urban areas ensures that not all rainwater ends up in the sewers and flows straight back into the sea. The trees retain water in the soil. Trees also provide shade so that buildings and roads store and radiate less heat, and through evaporation they make the air cooler. This lowers the temperature in the city. In this way, trees not only make cities cooler and more liveable on a local level, but they also ensure that temperature rises are slowed down in overall terms. The more trees, the better the living environment!
