A small miracle takes place every year in the forest. Who has never been surprised when it sounds the beginning of autumn and the summer season seems far away already… However among trees, no surprise, they have been preparing autumn for several weeks already.
LA CHARITÉ-SUR-LOIRE - BERTRANGES. Situated only a few kilometers from the town of La Charité-sur-Loire, the prestigious centuries old Bertranges oak forest has a long and interesting history which is evoked simply by the mention of its name.
An uneven-aged high stand is characterized by a stand of trees with all stages of development, from seedlings to old high forest. This mixture can be more or less balanced in the different age and diameter classes.
In the treatment of a regular high forest, the trees are educated in a stand of the same age and of similar dimensions. The exploitation concerns all the stands of a given plot when its regeneration is programmed.
