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 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.
