Restoring ecological richness to a military wasteland.
Troyes is a town that has seen significant loss of green cover in recent years due to senescent and diseased trees. Located at the center of the Pont-Sainte-Marie neighborhood, the forest forms part of an eco-district.
Having been a site dominated by human intervention, the growth of the Renewal Forest will help to rejuvenate an old tank base, transforming it into an important space of wilderness in an area devoid of the richness and diversity of Nature.

Community engagement sits at the heart of this project. As the forest grows, the residents of the neighborhood themselves will have a view of this urban park and the leisure to make it their own by being involved in planting and maintenance.
