About Luthenay forest

About Luthenay forest

In the heart of the Sologne region, not far from the commune of Luthenay-Uxeloup in France, lies this multi-species forest. It is composed of mixed plots of red oaks, poplars, Douglas firs, sessile oaks, loblolly pines and Austrian pines.
This former farmland, reforested about 25 years ago, is the subject of a major challenge for us at EcoTree, and we’re pursuing the ambition of continuing to reforest and sustainably manage the area.
Wild boars, roe deer, foxes, pheasants, pigeons and many other species live in the forest, which we aim to support through our biodiversity projects. The entire forest is covered by the Birds Directive Natura 2000 site and part of it by the Habitats Directive Natura 2000 site.

EcoTree’s forestry actions

EcoTree’s forestry actions

This forest was the subject of numerous projects in 2021, with the reforestation of 25 hectares and the creation of a forest service. Thinnings were also carried out to enhance the value of the mature stands. In 2022, replanting took place on the previous year's plantations. In 2023, our teams plan to assess the mortality of plants in order to organise fill planting and thinning on mixed stands, allowing the production of energy wood. One plot will also be reforested.

EcoTree’s actions for biodiversity

An inventory was carried out by the Permanent Centre for Environmental Initiatives (CPIE) of Bourgogne as well as a Potential Biodiversity Index (IBP). Following these two field studies, ponds were created and nesting boxes were installed.
Den trees were also selected in order to preserve the presence of several species in this forest (bats, native birds, pollinators, etc.).
