ABOUT URBAN FORESTS

Urban Forests was created in 2016 by Nicolas de Brabandere. He is a biologist and a naturalist.

Our solution makes it possible to reconcile the economy with ecology by bringing an innovative and natural proposal to environmental challenges.

Urban Forests uses the Miyawaki Method. Nicolas traveled all the way to India to learn the technic with Afforestt before he adapted it to the European context.

In 2021, Nicolas also completed certification at the Dr. Elaine Soil Food Web School to gain new skills in creating and maintaining good quality living soil for the trees.

The team :

Our team is composed of diverse experiences, generations and training to offer you the best possible service: from first hand analysis to the realisation of your projects.
