Photographer's Note

A photo from the Kroondomein. A vast forest of 10,000 hectares. Closed in the winter months in connection with the rutting season of red deer. No access for three months. Around 1850 this area was barren and small villages were threatened by 'sandstorms'. To protect settlements against these sandstorms, large parts became forests: the sand was retained by coniferous trees that do not place much demands on the quality of the soil. It is cultivated land, forests were planted in straight lines. Today they serve as a production forest. For some areas there is an access ban: there are wild boar and deer.
On the photo we see 'hills', which originated in the last ice age about 20,000 years ago: the Weichselian.
In the early hours, we might see the red deer or wild boar.
The water is used as drinking water and to wash and get rid of parasites. We sometimes find sanding piles along the fens. Due to agricultural activities the soils are contaminated with: the acidity is extremely high. Only a few plants are able to survive in this condition.

Une image du domaine de la couronne. Les collines sont formées par le vent. Au cours de la dernière période glaciaire, le sable s'est formé en collines. Ici et là, un ven est formé. Au petit matin, vous pourrez apercevoir des cerfs ou des sangliers.
