Located in Brittany, our Ploërdut forest is made up of four individual plots that we acquired gradually over a period of time.
Ploërdut 3 was previously agricultural land, where we have planted Maritime pine, Western red cedar, and Sitka spruce.

EcoTree’s forestry actions

EcoTree’s forestry actions

We prepped this plot in the spring of 2021 in order to start planting Cedar and Maritime Pine. In 2022 we cleared the entire area for competing vegetation, applied Trico to the trees and replanted in areas, where the young trees had not survived. Mulching was put down in 2023.

EcoTree’s actions for biodiversity

EcoTree’s actions for biodiversity

On this plot, we have installed 25 beehives and planted 800 meters of honey hedges to provide food resources to the pollinators. We also plan to restore the wetland and improve its ecological value.
In this area, multiple species, such as the Quimper snail, are proven to have high conservation value and conservation potential. The common European adder has a very high conservation value, whilst the Viviparous lizard, European bullfinch, Willow warbler, Western barbastelle, and Bechstein's bat have high conservation values. About 14 species have low conservation value.
We have also applied for a ‘Wildlife Territory’-label for this plot.
