A glimpse of the 'Blue Forest'

What color do you normally associate with a forest? Well, in the Hallerbos forest of Belgium, that would be blue, for reasons you can clearly see here. For about 10 days every year, usually in late April or early May, this very old forest floor is transformed as bluebell hyacinths wake up from their winter slumber and carpet the forest floor in blue.

Even though it's a bit early for the fleeting blooms, today would be a good day to visit the 'Blue Forest,' for this is the day that the United Nations recognizes the International Day of Forests. The theme of this year's observance is reforestation, another thing that Hallerbos is known for. Large swaths of the ancient forest were destroyed by occupying forces during World War I, which prompted the Belgian government to roll out an extensive reforestation project starting in the 1930s. Within 20 years, Hallerbos was well on its way to being a healthy forest again, as the depleted native beech and oak trees were restocked.

“蓝色森林”一瞥

你通常认为森林是什么颜色的?好吧,在比利时的哈勒博斯森林,那将是蓝色的,因为你可以清楚地看到这里的原因。每年大约有10天,通常是在4月底或5月初,当风信子从眠中醒来,用蓝色地毯铺在森林地板上时,这片古老的森林地板就发生了变化。

尽管现在开得有点早,但今天是参观“蓝林”的好日子,因为今天是联合国承认国际森林日的日子。今年纪念活动的主题是植造林,这是哈勒博斯另一个著名的活动。在第一次世界大战期间,大片的古老森林被占领军摧毁,这促使比利时政府从20世纪30年代开始实施大规模的重新造林项目。20年内,随着耗尽的本地山毛榉和橡树重新进货,哈勒波斯又一次成为一片健康的森林。
