Technical description of the forest management

The management method applied to the group's forests respects the following criteria :

 

- Fixed logging roads in order to maintain the ground's structure thus the forest's fertility and productivity.

 

- No clear cuts of more than a hectare during any step of the management process.

 

- No chemical products, pesticides, fertilizers, or any other substance that can cause harm to the ecosystems managed by the group (including groundwater).

 

- PEFC forestry label certification aiming to obtain FSC level certification.

 

- Further diversification of parcels in terms of wood types and structure to gradually transition towards inhomogeneous parcels

 

- Systematically encourage natural regeneration of parcels, along with adequate regulation of wildlife on said parcels.

 

- Presence of enough dead wood, both standing and fallen, as an ecological factor to boost biodiversity, water-holding capacity, and natural fertilisation.

 

- Diversified wood types in order to spur the forests's biodiversity.

 

- Hunting is a source of additional income but the priority is the balance between forest and game.

 

- At least 5% of each forest's area left as a nature reserve in order to sustain the most biodiversity-rich ecosystems.

 

These various measures allow us to preserve and  strengthen the ground's fertility, which is the forest's true capital, and therefore the group's true capital.

 

This will allow future generations to benefit from the preserved natural resources in order to allow the group's activities to continue in the best conditions possible, as well as appreciate the healthy and functional ecoystems' benefits.

 

L'esprit général qui sous-tend nos choix de gestion est explicité dans cet article :
La sylviculture irrégulière : une gestion forestière écologique

Nos forêts présente une grande biodiversité potentielle grâce à des habitats variés comme le démontre les Indices de Biodiversité Potentiel mesurés (entre 37 et 44 sur un maximum de 50).

 

Notre cahier des charges tendra à améliorer la biodiversité des forêts et favorisant la diversité des habitats (arbres morts au sol, arbres morts sur pied, gros arbres vivants).
