Here we are in green Normandy, and more precisely in Harcourt, a territory on which history has left its mark. From the 11th century lord's castle to the 17th century classical residence, passing through the medieval era during which the building was fortified, Harcourt has experienced a thousand changes. Its exteriors too. Their current organization dates back to 1810, when Louis Gervais Delamarre undertook to enhance the area by reforesting its green spaces. It must be said that the Normandy campaign has left severe wounds that must be healed. It will be an opportunity for this enthusiast to experiment with new silvicultural techniques and to test the establishment of many varieties - Lebanon cedars, redwoods, ginkgo, etc. - to identify those most able to restore French forests. Other big names in the horticultural world will then take up the torch, helping to make Harcourt one of the most remarkable arboretum in France. In total, some 2,900 trees from 56 families populate the area. Their average age? Between 150 and 200 years old. Whether you browse the rooms of the castle or the estate, you feel very modest in the face of the weight of history.
