On Saturday 18 and Saturday 25 March, 298 trees were planted at the Dutch MH17 National Monument for the victims of the aviation disaster over the Ukraine. The monument symbolises a green memorial ribbon rising out of the landscape. The memorial forest will open officially on 17 July 2017.
With their organic forms, multi-stem trees offer a beautiful contrast in urban environments. In the unique reference work and inspiring memory game 'We are multi-stem' from Ebben Nurseries, green professionals are introduced to a wide range of multi-stem trees and their applications in practice.
From a 115.55-metre Sequoia sempervirens to a Mexican cypress with a circumference of 36.2 metres. And from the Sequoiadendron giganteum with the telling name General Sherman to a 9,550-year-old spruce. Trees all around the world continue to impress us.
