Since 1100 A.C. Tibirke Hills has been used by the surrounding farms as grass fields to their animals.

Since 1700 sandstorm from Kattegat Sea covered Tibirke Hills and neighboring farmers with 1-2 meter of sand. The hills were cultivated with hjelme, marehalm and grass.

Neighboring 17 km2 area Tisvilde Hegn were since 1800 cultivated by forest to protect the area against sandstorm.

Tibirke Hills were since 1800 cultivated as a grass-growing area to animals from neighboring farms.
