Herning2022 plants 60,000 trees

May 12th 2022

It is the ambition of the Organisers to approach sustainability in a completely new way. Therefore, Herning2022 has worked closely with the Municipality of Herning on a number of green initiatives. One of the initiatives is planting a forest in the outskirts of Herning, which will help compensate CO2 for decades to come.

The new recreational area will be officially announced on May 26, where the Mare of Herning, Dorthe West, the partner Growing Trees and the organizers of Herning2022 will plant the first trees. The area will be named VM-Skoven (the World Championship Forest) and will be a public forest, with an opportunity for play, exercise and much more. Initially, 60,000 trees will be planted in the forest, with a kids play area and more. The public forest will be located on a 20 acres area by Løvbakkerne, which is an area north of Herning city.
