About the Sterrebos

The Sterrebos is a small, quiet, natural forest near Born in the Dutch province of Limburg. The forest was planted in the 18th century as a logging forest for Wolfrath castle, which is now a national monument. Many of the trees are 200 years old. The forest is remote and is thus a safe place for deer, badgers, bats and nesting birds.

If car manufacturer VDL Nedcar and the Province of Limburg get their way, the Sterrebos will be cut down in the beginning of 2022 to make room for an expansion of the car factory.

It is irresponsible to cut down a forest in this time of climate and ecological crisis. And even more so if this is to make room for a polluting factory.
