Managing forest resources

Oak trees can be felled starting at the age of 200.

The first step is seeding felling. This starts to seed the plot. A great many trees (40%) are cut down to create enough light for acorns to germinate.

Two or three years later, a second felling takes place. Insofar as this is possible, as many as three secondary fellings take place before the final cutting 10-20 years after seeding.  

Percentage of trees felled:

  • Seeding 40%
  • 1st secondary felling 25%
  • 2nd secondary felling 14%
  • 3rd secondary felling 14%
  • Definitive 7%
