About the Sarran Forest

About the Sarran Forest

The Sarran forest is located not far from the town of the same name, in the natural park of the Millevaches plateau.
When EcoTree took over this forest, it had been clear-cut, meaning that all the trees in the forest plot had been cut down. Since then, three plots have been replanted with a variety of tree species which include Douglas fir, Taeda pine and European larch.
The aim of the sustainable forest management we are carrying out in this forest is to help these saplings overcome competing vegetation to form a resilient forest that is rich in biodiversity and produces valuable wood.

EcoTree’s forestry actions

EcoTree’s forestry actions

After our purchase in 2020, we planted Douglas firs, Taeda pines and larches on three plots and in 2021, we carried out a clearing on the planting line. The following year, inter-row mulching was done by our teams, to clear and count the saplings, before proceeding to a fill planting.
New fill plantings are planned for our Douglas fir, Taeda pine and larch plots. They will be carried out by one of our partners: Alliance Forêt Bois (Forest Wood Alliance). We will also apply Trico, a sheep fat-based repellent, on the saplings to protect them from deer browsing.

EcoTree’s actions for biodiversity

EcoTree’s actions for biodiversity

This forest is very rich in biodiversity. We have therefore applied for the Wildlife Estates label and have already set up numerous actions to encourage its development. A participatory project was carried out to plant a 350-metre long honey hedge, and nesting boxes were built and installed by local schoolchildren.
In the coming months, we will be working on the creation of an educational trail to help visitors to learn more about this forest and its ecosystem.
