Norway Maple

The Norway Maple is a deciduous tree. They are green in spring and turn yellow and sometimes red in autumn. This hardy tree, very widespread in France, is precious for its rapid growth. Its wood is used in carpentry, for floors, and its ashes are used to make potash. Its Latin name Acer means sharp, hence the French word 'acéré' (pointed). The tree owes its name to its wood, which was used in antiquity to make spears.

- Growth: rapid
- Height: 10 to 45 meters
- Foliage: deciduous leaves, always opposite each other, with webbed veins composed of 3 to 9 veins, the main one located in the center
- Trunk: longitudinal white, grey or cinnabar red stripes
- Bark: first smooth and yellowish grey, then reddish grey and darker and darker with age as it peels off and flakes.
- Color: crimson, scarlet red, orange, yellow, or silver according to the season

This species makes the forest stronger and more resilient, which improves the health of the entire plot by promoting biodiversity. Its expected profitability is linked to the logging of the stand where it grows.

About Pleyben forest

In Brittany, between the Monts d’Arrée and the Black Mountains (Montagnes Noires), lies the Pleyben forest. From the forest, you can catch a glimpse of the Mont Saint-Michel, the highest point in Brittany (385 m).

The forest is made up of more than ten different species, including Vancouver fir, sycamore maple, wild cherry, Sitka spruce, chestnut, Douglas fir and red oak. There is also a wealth of biodiversity, with a river, two ponds below the plot, and five beehives.
These beehives were built by Pierre Douguet, the former owner, using wood from the forest, and were placed at the edge of the plot to allow small pollinating insects to work in hives built locally.
