With 325,000 hectares, the wooded areas in the Pays-de-la-Loire region cover 11% of the region’s surface area. This low surface area (compared to the average of French regions: 28.6%) is combined with a high level of property parcelling. Only state-owned forests and a few private forests in the Eastern part of the region make up large wooded areas.
Public forests in the Pays-de-la-Loire region cover 42,200 hectares. 10% of wooded surface area is managed by the French National Forests Office (ONF). Mainly state-owned, it includes prestigious forests like the Bercé. City, department, and regional forests account for minimal surface area.
