The Dutch organisation for naturepreservement (natuurmonumenten) has wetten the Fochteloërveen (the Dutch word 'veen' means moor).They raised the waterlevel and made adjustments to keep the rainwater in the moorarea.This row of trees are getting too wet and slowly die.

Vereniging Natuurmonumenten heeft het Fochteloërveen in het Drents-Friese grensgebied weer natter gemaakt. Het natuurgebied houdt het regenwater nu langer vast. De waterstand is verhoogd en hoogveengroei is weer mogelijk.Voor deze bomen wordt het te nat en balanceren op de grens van leven en dood.

Not that sad Palmina,

In Holland we have this expression:'De 1 zijn dood is de ander zijn brood'. Translated it would be something like: Someones death gives a nother bread. Meaning the trees in this more will die but a Bog habitat is created wich allows acidic peat to grow again.
