Dictionary of Dutchness


Launched on the back of international concerns about deforestation, Boomfeestdag used to be known as ‘plant a tree day’ but the name was changed to ‘tree party day’ in 1980. In March every year some 150,000 children plant around 100,000 trees and bushes to celebrate this day. Since the event began, more than 10 million trees have been planted on Boomfeestdag.
