This study analysed the influence of drainage on the vegetation cover of raised bogs in the taiga zone of Western Siberia. The study was based on a temporal analysis of Landsat satellite imagery data using the normalised difference vegetation index (NDVI) for the period from 1975–2020. We investigated four key sites within drained raised bogs. The analysis was not carried out using absolute NDVI values; rather, the ratio of the NDVI values of drained bogs to the NDVI values of a similar pristine bog was used. Four stages of the vegetation dynamics of drained bogs were determined. In the first stage, including the period before drainage, the NDVI values were close to those of the pristine site, which confirms that there are similar conditions before drainage. The second stage, from 1989–2001(2002), is characterised by a decrease in NDVI values relative to the pristine bog. This was probably due to the degradation of moss vegetation, which is a sensitive indicator of a decrease in the water table level in the absence of a significant growth of the tree layer. Furthermore, since the 2000s, there has been an increase in the NDVI values and they have stabilised at the level of a pristine bog.
