- Atlas cedar
- European larch
The Atlas Cedar is a species of coniferous tree of the family Pinaceae. It is native to the Atlas, mountain massif of North Africa. A majestic tree, it has been planted in many parks.
Also called blue cedar or silver cedar, the Atlas cedar is a majestic and imposing tree that can reach a height of 30 to 40 meters.
Female cones are reddish yellow and have a flattened top. Their scales are bordered with a brown border. They need 3 years to mature.
The Atlas cedar supports all types of soil provided it is well drained. It does not support windy exposures and spring gels. In a non-humid zone, it can withstand, when well installed, temperatures down to -25 ° C as well as summer dryness. Water young people during severe droughts.
The cedar of the Atlas can be attacked by the processionary of the pine which also attacks the pines or by the processionary of the cedar that is specific to him. The Acleris undunala leafroller also causes drying on many trees at the scale of entire massifs. Aphids Cedrobium laportei and Cinara cedri attack young shoots or needles.
The fungus Phellinus chrysoloma causes wood rot.
Atlas cedars live in mountainous areas and cedar trees grow between an altitude of 1,500 and 2,500 m, with a preference for the north and west slopes much more watered. The drought of recent years and above all a deforestation galloping considerably reduced its range.
An important forest species, its fine, light and aromatic wood is used in carpentry or as a framework.
Its fragrant resin was used to embalm the mummies.
Bourgogne Franche Comté – Côte d’Or
Burgundy is a vast wooded region among the most wooded with its surface area covered in broadleaf trees, particularly Oak, and its areas of Douglas fir, a resinous species recently implanted in the region. The region’s wood industry is adjusting to exploiting and transforming the growing volumes of conifers reaching maturity. Diversified, dynamic, and a driver of job creation, it is increasingly recognised by societý for its environment and leisure.
With nearly 960,000 hectares of forest, Burgundy is the sixth most wooded region in France. Over 30% of the region’s surface area is given over to forests while Metropolitan France has woods over 27% of its surface area. Forests are unequally spread throughout Burgundy due to more or less favourable pedoclimatic conditions. Heavily present on the Montagne Bourgignonne or the Morvan, it is much less dense in the Peri-morvandelle Plains and the Bressane Depression. The western part of the region is influenced by the Atlantic and the east has more continental influences.
The Côte d’Or
With 332,000 hectares of wooded surface area, or 36% of the department, the Côte-d’Or is ranked 4th in metropolitan France’s most wooded departments, after the Vosges. Furthermore, the Côte-d’Or is the most wooded department in Burgundy with broadleaf forests making up the majority (3/4 and mostly oaks), covering nearly 270,000 hectares. Half of forested areas are publicly owned, or 162,000 hectares, including 115,000 hectares owned by local authorities (661 forests) and 47,000 hectares owned by the state (51 forests). Uncut volume is estimated at nearly 50 million m3 in 2004, growing each year by 1.6 million m3.
Broadleaf trees still dominate timber harvests with over 200,000 m3 harvested in Côte-d’Or. The department stands out by exploiting significant amounts of hardwood broadleaf timber for industry (+120,000 m3) and also for heating (70,000 m3).
In addition to production, the forest has other environmental and social roles: biodiversity, landscaping, public use, hunting, etc. All of these roles can be recognised locally by many stakeholders who sign up to a territorial forest charter. The Morvan is a pioneer in France in this domain.
