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.

In the heart of the Sologne Bourbonaise, this massif spreads out to include many species. It consists of plots of red oaks, oaks, poplars, Douglas fir, Taeda pines, Laricio pines, etc. This forest is a major challenge for EcoTree, which therefore pursues its vocation of reforesting and ensuring sustainable management of its massifs. Wild boars, roe deer and foxes, but also pheasants, pigeons, thrushes, blackbirds and many other species live peacefully there, thanks in particular to the biodiversity actions put in place to ensure their sustainability.
