The Trinité Langonnet forest is located in Brittany. It used to be an agricultural land but was taken over by EcoTree in May 2021. Since then, it has been reforested, mainly with sessile and oak seedlings.
This forest has a remarkable biodiversity: it shelters a wetland and is located between several important ecological zones, integrating itself within these protected areas (Natural Zones of Interest for Ecology, Fauna and Flora (ZNIEFF) of type I and II). It is also partly involved in ‘Natura 2000’, which is a network of protected areas covering Europe's most valuable and threatened species and habitats. This initiative applies to the Ellé river as well as to the moors of Kermadou and a sandstone hill reaching a height of 292 metres, the highest summit in Morbihan, called Saint-Joseph. It is home to dry moorlands and provides a very interesting habitat.

The site is quite exceptional: it is located between several important ecological zones and is therefore integrated within these preserved spaces. It is notably surrounded by the Natura 2000 site of the river Ellée, by a ZNIEFF (a type of natural environment recognized by France) of type 1: the moors of Kermadou which shelter hygrophilous moors of priority community interest, and by the Calotte St Joseph (sandstone hill, the highest peak of Morbihan: 292m) also classified as a ZNIEFF of type 1 and which shelters dry moors and constitutes a very interesting habitat, in particular for harriers (notably the northern harrier). The forest is itself partly labelled Natura 2000. It is mainly sessile and pedonculate oaks that will be planted and conducted irregularization of the stands.
