About Gourin forest

The Gourin forest is located near the Conveau forest, within the commune of the same name, which is one of the most watered communes in Morbihan with an average annual rainfall of 1000 mm. This forest was originally made up of agricultural meadows that were left to be abandoned, as the terrain was not suitable for farming due to its sloping and isolated nature. With lack of maintenance, the meadows were overtaken by wasteland and oaks, willows and birches grew haphazardly amidst brambles and ferns on certain plots.
This forest plot changed hands multiple times, with different owners holding parcels of the property in joint ownership, until the last owners agreed and decided to sell the land to EcoTree in order to create areas for sustainable tree plantations.
