Blogging Logging

Near where we live is an area known as the Zwarte Veen (the Black Bog). The bog has long since been drained and is now farmland. We often walk the dogs along a track running through the area. The track has had trees planted on either side, and these are now mature.


The owners of the trees have started logging at the end of the avenue. Seeing them piled up by the side of the road brings home just how big the trees were.


About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
