The forest is located in the commune of Le Syndicat, in the Vosges, in the east of France. It is made up of a clear cut area to be replanted, an existing forest and a wetland to be restored.

This forest hosts a hiking trail and small stream which sustains several ecosystems. The entire forest is surrounded by dry stone walls. According to our lead forester, Arnaud De Grave, they were probably once used to mark a grazing area for various farm animals. The forest consists of 5 hectares. On 2 of these hectares, the trees are in good condition. Some silver fir and spruce are up to 70 years old! On the other 3 hectares, there used to be spruce trees. These were attacked by bark beetles, which the previous owner then decided to cut down to prevent spreading - this is called a sanitary cut, and now there's a lot of work for us to do to regain the natural regeneration.
