Short History of the site

It is an old parcel of maritime pine. The land belongs to the General Council of Gironde. It is a wet moor ground since covered with 80% molinie. This site has been selected because there is little slope and access is easy. The plot was fenced because of the game. This arboretum is right next to the INRA Experimental Unit, which allows for more precise measurements and observations. This situation also makes it possible to organize frequent visits for groups of professionals, students and forest owners.
