Short History of the site

The arboretum is located on private land which was formerly dedicated to sunflower cultivation. This site was chosen because it met all the criteria: little slope, easy access ... The plot was fenced off to avoid damages caused by wild animals. The owner is a forest enthusiast and organises every year a forest event on his property. He is promoting the project in local press and is actively managing about 200ha of forest, making also his own experiments.
