About Langoëlan forest

About Langoëlan forest

The Langoëlan forest is located in the north of France, on the border of the area called Côte-d’Armor. It is composed of several plots, where different tree species such as red oak, Sitka spruce and Douglas fir are planted.
Thanks to its rich biodiversity, the forest has been recognised as a Natural Zone of Interest for Ecology, Fauna and Flora (ZNIEFF of type I et II). It is also protected by a Natura 2000 habitats directive.

EcoTree’s forestry actions

In 2021, this forest underwent a clearance operation on 3 hectares to ensure the sustainable of the stand. Following this forestry operation, supplementary planting was carried out among the Sitka spruce plantations.
Furthermore, a plot of mature Sitka spruce underwent a thinning operation to promote natural regeneration.
In the coming years, various forestry actions are planned to maintain the plantations in the long term, including inter-row mulching across all plots.

EcoTree’s actions for biodiversity

EcoTree’s actions for biodiversity

Biodiversity is abundant in the Langoëlan forest. That is why we conducted a study of the different groups of species present to determine the conservation challenges. We planted and regularly maintain a honey hedge in the area.
Long-term plans include restoration work on a 5-hectare wetland. The habitat will be opened up, scrub stripping areas will be created, and five forest ponds will be established to promote the preservation of species of conservation concern.
Finally, based on the results of the study of the different groups of species present, we plan to apply for the Wildlife Estates label.
