About Berné 1 forest

About Berné 1 forest

The Berné 1 forest is located in the hinterland of Lorient in Brittany in France. This plantation dates back to 1991, and has long suffered from a lack of management. The site has been recognised as a type II Natural Zone of Interest for Ecology, Fauna and Flora (ZNIEFF). EcoTree acquired the forest in 2020 and has since been working to improve the Douglas fir stand on the plot.

EcoTree’s forestry actions

This forest has been marked and the timber from a thinning cut was sold. The thinning was carried out when management was taken over in order to improve the Douglas fir stand and remove as many poorly shaped stems as possible. The French Code of Good Forestry Practice (CBPS) was also submitted and validated.
