Poplar

Poplars are trees of the genus Populus of the family Salicaceae.

The populus genus includes 35 species from the temperate and cold regions of the northern hemisphere. It also includes many natural or man-made hybrids. Poplars, fast-growing trees, are rarely found in dense forests but rather in riparian forests and in the vicinity of wetlands. They grow on wet or temporarily flooded land. Some species (aspen) can grow on poor-quality, sandy soils and can tolerate sea spray quite well, although are found some distance away from the sea.

The planting method is very different from that usually chosen for other species such as oak or Douglas fir; they are planted with shovels or pickaxes, as well as with root plants.

Poplar, on the other hand, is planted from planks: 3 to 4 m long branches are used as cuttings, which are planted at the crowbar. The planter makes a hole.

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.
