Short History of the site
The site was installed on an old meadow that is divided in two by a ditch. Individual protections were installed against the game. The arboretum is located on the Ognoas estate, owned by the Landes General Council. The main production of this forest and agricultural domain is Armagnac. It also hosts other forestry research and development schemes. This site has been selected because there is little slope and access is easy.
