About Louargat forest

About Louargat forest

The Louargat forest is located on the Hoguéné mountain, one of the highest points in area Côtes-d’Armor, offering a splendid view of the surrounding countryside. It is home to the flower called Scilla, which is a protected species.
Since our acquisition, a great deal of work has been carried out to allow the reforestation of a new high forest on this previously clear-cut area. Today, Douglas fir, Scots pine, Sitka spruce and red oak saplings are flourishing there. The forest has also been recognised as being a type I Natural Zone of Interest for Ecology, Fauna and Flora (ZNIEFF).

EcoTree’s forestry actions

EcoTree’s forestry actions

Immediately after taking over its management, major soil work was carried out in this forest to enable our teams to reforest it. Following this work, young seedlings of red oak, Scots pine, Douglas fir and Sitka spruce were planted. Manual clearing with a brush cutter was then performed to improve the quality of the stands. The saplings were also treated with Trico, a sheep fat-based repellent used to protect them from wildlife. In early winter 2022, a supplementary planting was carried out.
Over the next few years, we will monitor the plantations and ensure their sustainable management. Manual clearance is also planned.
