The name Melgven comes from the words "mell" (rounded hill) and "gween" (white); the white hill.

The Melgven forest is situated on a moderate slope, oriented to the northeast and with rainfall levels of around 1000 mm per year. This makes the area suitable for Douglas-fir and chestnut. The ground vegetation mainly consists of molinia and fern. The area had been lacking forestry management since a complete clearcut was carried out. EcoTree is now giving new life to this historical area, where you can find numerous remains from the Gallo-Roman era.
