"Nature on the Veluwe is in a bad shape, a very bad shape. The main cause is pollution by nitrogen oxides. Unique plants and animals are on the verge on being extinct. “Nitrogen oxides are necessary for the growth of trees and plants, but too much of it causes acidification resulting in plants and trees dying and disappearing from the area."
