About Champeau-en-Morvan forest

About Champeau-en-Morvan forest

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.

EcoTree’s forestry actions

EcoTree’s forestry actions

In 2021, the forest plots were replanted with Douglas fir and larches. The following year, the planted plots were maintained, notably through clearing, and the plants were protected by applying Trico, a natural wild game repellent made from sheep fat.
Our aim now is to support the growth of the trees according to the principles of sustainable forestry. We will have to carry out clearing work in the upcoming years.

EcoTree’s actions for biodiversity

EcoTree’s actions for biodiversity

In order to preserve the biodiversity of the forest, we have undertaken various actions. The first was an ecological diagnosis by the CPIE Bourgogne. Following the conclusions of the latter, our teams created two ponds and planted a melliferous hedge to encourage biodiversity. Den trees have also been marked for preservation.
In 2023, an inventory of amphibians and dragonflies will be carried out on the ponds, in order to measure their effectiveness on the surrounding biodiversity. We have also started the process to obtain the "Territoire Faune Sauvage" (Wildlife Territory) label.
