Hanneke de Bruijn, born 1977 in Alkmaar. Grown up in Heerhugowaard, Holland. Living in Arnhem since 1999.


I am looking for job that suits more with my passion for Trees, Old trees... If your Company need more passion, you are more than welcome to send me an email and we can work it out :-)



From my early childhood I am a nature lover, and stroll around in the woods and the fields.

From 1992 till 2000 I was a member of the Jeugdbond voor Natuur en Milieustudie (JNM, A club for nature minded young people(age from 12 till 25) organised and runned by young people. Excursions in the nature and have summer camps)

Fom 1994 tot 1999 I have studied in Hoorn on the Agriculture and Horticultural school.
In 1999 tot 2004 I followed a study on the International College Larenstein, Velp, Holland. During those studies I have been a trainee in Ireland(2000) and Ivory Coast (West-Africa, 2002). In 2003 I did research and write my thesis in South- Africa.

In 2004 I have been graduated as A Bachelor of Science in Tropical Forestry.

Photography is a hobby of mine for a very long time. First on a analogous camera, later on a digital.

In 2005 I have been travelling to England with two other tree minded people. We search for the ancient, huge and old trees that we find in books about the trees in England(Thomas Packenham). We found several beautiful trees. During the travel I had a good "click" with one of the travel companions. He is now my Soul mate/parner.

At least once a year we travel to England to search for more ancient old trees we found in books. Most of the time we found trees on our route that I did not found in any of my books.

Those trees are such of a beauty and of age that you wonder if the time stood still. I admire them and have unconditional respect and love for them.
.Very ancient old trees and very impressive.

The trees on this website and the stories of them are a result of my travelling and my passion and fascination for this secret old trees.



Huge, big, ancient old trees of at least 1000 or 2000 years old are my passion. I am very fascinated by them. I admire them and have a big respect and love for them. On this website you can find all of my passion about this.

You can also order my unique pictures on Canvas, in many sizes and shapes. They are printed by a professional company.
