Geerbos Logging

Monday, 29-December-2014 - Veghel - Hired by Veghel Township and using state-of-the-art logging equipment, Van Weert Rondhout BV was clearing tall popular trees from Geerbos woods across from our housing area.  According to Van Weert, this was to give shorter oak trees a better chance to grow.  I was sad to see these tall trees go. When we moved here 18 years ago, we were happy to be situated near a stand of tall trees.  In recent years, many these populars have been harvested to comply with a European subsidy obtained more than 25 years ago.  pics (46)
