Participate in the planting of noble species (oak and forest fruit trees)
The project at a glance
Number of trees to be planted: 13,933
Planting area: 8.62 ha
Species planted: sessile oak, torminal alisier, wild pear
Type of project: planting on dying coppice
Planting period: Autumn/Winter 2018-2019
Context and benefits
The planting context is interesting in two ways. It is part of a Natural Area of Ecological Interest for Fauna and Flora known as the "Massif Forestier du Haut Perche" as well as a Natura 2000 area established for the conservation of bird species.
This project aims to revitalize a declining coppice of white wood, i.e. rejects from short-lived tree stumps.
The establishment of local deciduous species adapted to the stations will make the forest more resistant to natural hazards. The sessile oak is accompanied by forest fruit trees: alisier and pears. This diversity of species increases the ecological potential of the project, particularly for birds.
