This picture taken early this morning (10.10.2018) during sunrise, with sun rays between the trees leaves gives a very nice effect

Sandy soils with an unfavorable soil profile

The soil map shows acid sandy soils with a leached (horizontally bleached) horizon that crosses to a matted horizon that is humic and / or iron rich. The soil map makes a distinction between profiles that are still well preserved and profiles that have been fragmented. The latter are old cultivated soils that, as a result of the deep tillage and intense fertilization, have been given a construction in which the bleached horizon has been processed and the hardened horizon is fragmented and partly dissolved. This distinction tells us something about the use of the land.
Places where the profile was well preserved indicate that agricultural use cannot go back far in time. These lands mainly coincide with the areas that are still under forest or where the forest was only mined in the 19th or 20th century. These soils, together with the soils on clay substrate, form part of the former Maldegem field. Both soil associations were characterized by an impenetrable layer that gave rise to the impounding water tables.

I hope that you enjoy it
