Douglas fir

The Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii) is a North American species of the pinaceous family that was introduced into Breton parks in the mid-19th century. Its area of origin extends along the Pacific coast from Canada to California. This species is one of the most widely used in reforestation in France. In Brittany, Douglas fir areas represent about 12,000 ha, or 4% of the wooded area. The Douglas is a fast-growing tree, which is why it is used extensively in reforestation. It also has good technical qualities (wood processing for carpentry, exterior construction because it is rot-proof to the core).

About Pont-de-Buis forest

The Pont-de-Buis forest is located between Quimper and Brest in the heart of the regional parc ‘Parc Naturel Régional d’Armorique’ in Brittany. The area profits from more than 1.000 mm of yearly rain.
This forest used to be agricultural land but is planted with Chestnut, Red Oak, Beech, Douglas fir, and Atlas cedar. We have also preserved an acidophilic Beech forest with Holly rich in biodiversity.
