The forest

With its 4323 ha, the forest of Crécy is the main forest in the Somme region and the only one of that size opened to the public.

Consisting primarily of beeches and oaks, the Crécy National Forest offers quality timber production. Crécy white beeches are particularly special. 22 remarkable trees out of 30 classified in 1905 still exist. The oldest, "the Ramolleux oak" may be six centuries’ old!

Wolves disappeared in 1869. Gradually deer’s and wild boars took over. Nowadays, foxes, squirrels, woodcocks, pheasants, woodpeckers and buzzards populate the forest.
