Tiendeveen is a village in the Dutch province of Drenthe. In 1926 the Linthorst Homan Canal was dug, which was connected to the Verlengde Hoogeveenschevaart near Noordscheschut. After the peat cutting, many forests were created, remnants of which can still be found today. The Kremboong forest is a well-known example of this.

Tiendeveen is mainly surrounded by meadows and other smaller villages and hamlets such as De Haar, Siberië, Het Noorden, Zwartschaap and Stuifzand. The surroundings of meadows are interspersed with small pieces of forest and various smaller bodies of water such as the Vlotwijk, Zwierswijk, Singel Kattenburg and 8e Wijk.

Tiendeveen has about 750 people, most of whom live in the village. These residents usually have a job at a company in Hoogeveen or study here. Partly because of this, Tiendeveen has become a commuter village of Hoogeveen. In addition to a white and brown goods store and two mobile stores, Tiendeveen is dependent on the stores in Hoogeveen, Noordscheschut and Hollandscheveld, which can be reached in ten minutes by car.

Tiendeveen owes its name to an agreement that peat could be dug for a tenth part. Around 1830, Tiendeveen consisted of three peat fields (‘De Drie Veenen’) that were excavated: the Wijstersche, the Spieringer and the Drijbersche Tiendeveen. In 1849, a group of four participants bought 700 hectares of peat land in the southern tip of the municipality of Beilen to peat it. One of these participants, Jan Coenraad Rahder, was granted exclusive rights to this territory after a mutual quarrel. In 1863 he founded a school for the children of his workers. After the peat was excavated, Tiendeveen became a farming village. Later, workers who worked in factories in Hoogeveen also settled there.
