The Champeau-en-Morvan forest is located on the edge of the Chamboux lake in Bourgogne Franche-Comté, France. It is located within the Morvan mountains and its regional nature park. Two main tree species grow there: Douglas fir and larch. The forest also has a great diversity of other species.
Since we took over the management of the forest in the spring of 2020, our teams have created two ponds, planted trees in the plots that needed replanting and planted a melliferous hedge to support and stimulate the existing biodiversity.

This forest was taken over by EcoTree in early spring 2020. Parts of the forests had recently been cut. It will be reforested with the aim of creating an uneven-aged forest. An area of new young Douglas trees will soon be planted. But first, some thinnings and forestry work have to be done in the area. This is to make space for the new trees and to start creating a forest with a variety of age-groups.
