About Faouët 5 forest

About Faouët 5 forest

The Faouët forest is located in Brittany in France and is divided into 5 plots that we acquired between 2017 and 2022.
The various plots are bordered by two rivers and cover nearly 50 hectares in total.Our objective is to have uneven-aged stands on all the plots, while at the same time enriching the existing biodiversity and increasing the production of timber and industrial wood within the framework of sustainable forestry.
We took over the management of Faouët 5 i March 2022, where we have planted Poplar, Douglas fir,Maritime fir, Beech, Monterey fir, and Normand fir.

EcoTree’s actions for biodiversity

EcoTree’s actions for biodiversity

An Index of Potential Biodiversity (IBP) has been carried out on this plot, which revealed some interesting information about the existing ecosystem, particularly within the 10 hectares that were already planted, where den trees were marked to increase the amount of standing deadwood and fallen wood. We have also preserved a hedge and work is planned to maintain the wetland in the best possible condition. The presence of sago pondweed (a perennial aquatic plant) is proof of the relative purity of the water in the Diarnelez stream that borders the plot.
