    South of Zandvoort scrub of Sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides), Common privet (Ligustrum vulgare) and Creeping willow (Salix repens) is widely spread. From vegetation mapping it was concluded that the distribution is associated to a temporal and spatial gradient of land-use. In the area of ongoing land-use scrub is almost absent. Sea buckthorn, acting as a pioneer in sand drifts and abandoned fields, dominates the area where the traditional land-use was terminated eighty years ago. At a long distance from the village scrub developed for more than a century without substantial influence of human activities. Here the thickets of Common privet, replacing the degraded scrub of Sea buckthorn and Creeping willow, indicate regressive succession. The extent and character of scrub may be used as a natural guide to set up schemes for nature management in the calcareous dunes.
