Other Site Characteristics

1.1 SituationLe massif forestier du « Faascht» est situé au Sud-est de la localité de Hagen sur un versant de faible pente d'exposition Est.1.2 Milieu physiqueL'altitude du massif forestier se situe entre 310m et 325m. Le substrat géologique est entièrement formé par les couches du Sinémurien inférieur et Lotharingien du Lias inférieur (li3- li4). La majorité du massif forestier repose sur des sols limono-caillouteux a charge schisto-phylladeuse à l'exception de la partie Nord-Ouest constituée par des sols limoneux peu caillouteux, non gleyifiés a modérément gleyifiés.1.3 Occupation du solLa majorité (env. 90%) du massif forestier est occupée par la chênaie-charmaie à l'exception de la partie Nord-Ouest de la zone couverte par une hêtraie à mélique (9130).

4.2 Quality and importance

L'intérêt majeur de la zone est la chênaie-charmaie âgée d'environ 140 années.Le caractère typique de la chênaie-charmaie est assez bien marqué dans les parties aval ou peu pentues du massif. L'apparition de hêtres et de chênes sessiles dans les parties amont du massif réduit la typicité de ce PC. L'étage arborescent et arbustif sont bien diversifiés et la biodiversité est favorisée par la présence de bois mort sur pied et au sol.La forêt abrite deux espèces de chauves-souris de l'annexe II.

6.3 Conservation measures (optional)

Principes de gestionFavoriser les futaies mélangées (régulières ou irrégulières), étagées verticalement, avec maintien d’un mélange important, en nombre et recouvrement global, d’essences variées dans la strate arborescente (Erables, Charme, Merisier, Ormes, Alisier torminal, Aulne glutineux, Bouleau, Saule marsault et Tremble…) selon les variantes du type d’habitat, facilité par le dynamisme de régénération de la plupart de ces essences.Préservation des habitats et milieux intraforestiers associés (sources, ripisylves et forêts marécageuses, mardelles, …) et des arbustes du sous-bois. Elargissement et diversification des lisières (favoriser arbustes spontanés et les fruitiers).Maintien d’arbres morts et d’arbres à cavités. Délaissement en forêt d’arbres non exploitables et des rémanents de coupe. Création d’îlots de vieillissement.Eviter l’emploi d’engin lourd en dehors des chemins prévus.Limiter la présence des populations de gibier (sangliers, chevreuils) pouvant nuire à la régénération naturelle.
