You love & enjoy your colourful garden. But did you know that secretly, parts of these tropical plants travel to the forest - sticking to our shoes, our tyres & our gear? And often … plant waste is being dumped in nature. No big deal, you might think. But some of these plants turn out to be invasive alien species: they overgrow or disturb the existing wildlife. The healthy ecosystem of the forest is gone, and so are the benefits for all of us.

You can help protect our precious forests by choosing your garden plants wisely & by disposing of your plant waste responsibly. The forest thanks you!

Did you know that we are regularly picking up hitchhikers? They travel invisibly from one place to another, sticking on our shoes and tyres, on our machines and working gear. They’re tiny animals or seeds and roots of plants, and they can end up in the forest. No big deal, you might think. But some of them are invasive alien species: they overgrow or disturb the existing wildlife. The healthy ecosystem disappears, and so do the benefits for all of us. Buildings and roads are damaged & trees get sick. This comes at a huge cost to nature and society.

You can help protect our precious forests by cleaning your shoes, your tyres & your gear before entering the forest. The forest thanks you!

This forest is packed with life. For millions of years plants, insects, birds, mammals and fungi have built a healthy ecosystem. But did you know that invasive alien species can travel with us secretly when we visit the forest - their seeds, roots & larvae are sticking to our shoes, our tyres & our gear. Once in the forest they overgrow, chase away or disturb the existing species. The healthy ecosystem of the forest is gone, and so are the benefits for all of us.

You can help protect our precious forests by cleaning your shoes, tyres and gear before & after your visit. The forest thanks you!
