NGP: Study tour of IUFRO forest plantations in resilient landscapes
05.092022
The Douglas fir plantations are part of the territorial mosaic of the Limousin, whose landscape is mainly composed of meadows and deciduous forests (oak and chestnut). The plantations were created at the end of the Second World War in a context of abandonment of agricultural land and lack of wood. Today we are in the phase of harvesting and reconstituting these stands which are reaching maturity.Through this didactic itinerary, we will explore how plantations can be integrated into resilient landscapes. We will be looking at the Limousin landscape, but we will also be inspired by other case studies that apply the concept of new generation plantations (New Generation plantations) in other parts of the world.The Pôle de Lanaud building, created to promote the Limousin cattle breed and built with local Douglas fir, will be an ideal backdrop to discuss with landscape stakeholders the real challenges faced by the plantation sector in making a positive impact on the landscape.Participation in this event is free of charge and we invite you to register as soon as possible. It will be translated into French and English
