The Melrand forest is located in the small eponymous commune whose history began in the 5th century due to the massive arrival of the Bretons driven from Great Britain by the Anglo-Saxons.

Nestled on the borders of Cornouaille and the vannetais, Melrand shelters many prehistoric and ancient remains, as well as a rich and diversified architectural heritage, composed of the church, many calvaries, fountains and chapels. It is in this cultural and natural setting that many of the region's specific species are about to take root, with the aim of reforesting, by means of integrated silviculture that's close to nature: an agricultural land that was inevitably destined to regain its former status as a forest massif.
