Nederland - Schoorlse Duinen

Nederland - Schoorlse Duinen
The Schoorlse Duinen (Schoorl Dunes) is a nature reserve nearby the village of Schoorl. If you walk around it is hard to imagine, but around 1900 the sand still had free play, until Staatsbosbeheer - a Dutch government organization for forestry and the management of nature reserves - started planting trees, not for recreation, but to prevent the dunes burying the villages. Now there is heathlan and forests of pine trees and perennial trees.

The Schoorlse Duinen do have the highest dune (55,4 meters ) and the widest dunes (5 km) of the Netherlands. It also offers some dune lakes, among them the Vogelmeer (Bird Lake).

On a beautiful but freezing winter's day, we walked the so-called roet route (soot trail). This route took us along places which were hit by forest fires in 2009, 2010 and 2011. Fortunately nature is starting to recover slowly, but surely.

Fascinating information to go with your wonderful collage that combine to tell a richly detailed story. Hopefully the villages are safe from being buried in sand! It it a crazy thing to realize that sand is almost like an entity which moves and creeps forward a little more each day. (since '22, the Sahara has grown 10%!) Good a plan was enacted to keep the sand in place. Sorry to hear about the wildfires, a terrible blow to the plans to keep the sand seated but I was happy to read that the area is recovering slowly.

A complete set of remarkable winter perspectives
This strategy of stopping the progression of the dunes can also be found in Aquitaine (southwestern France), through the Landes forest. The resulting landscape is strikingly similar.
