Other Site Characteristics

1.1 Situation Le massif forestier du « Waal» est situé à l'est de la localité de Dudelange sur un plateau central avec deux versants exposés au Nord et au Sud bordant l'autoroute E 25. 1.2 Milieu physique L'altitude du massif forestier se situe entre 280m et 305m. Le substrat géologique est entièrement formé par les couches du Toarcien (Lias supérieur). Le massif de Waal repose sur des sols limono-caillouteux a charge schisto-phylladeuse, non gleyifiés. 1.3 Occupation du sol La majorité (env. 94%) du massif forestier est occupée par la chênaie-charmaie à l'exception de plusieurs petites parcelles couvertes par des plantations de résineux et de peupliers.

4.2 Quality and importance

L'intérêt majeur de la zone est la chênaie-charmaie âgée d'environ 100 années. Le caractère typique de la chênaie-charmaie est très bien marqué dans la partie aval du massif. Le caractère typique de la chênaie-charmaie est très bien marqué dans la majeure partie du massif. Il se réduit progressivement vers la partie amont occupée par la chênaie sessiliflore. L'étage arborescent et arbustif sont peu diversifiés par rapport aux potentialités du site. A noter la présence de nombreuses mardelles accompagnés d'une végétation spécifique.

X
Yes Name: Plan de gestion - Natura 2000 « Massif forestier du Waal » (zone spéciale de conservation LU0001076)

No, but in preparation
No

6.3 Conservation measures (optional)

Principes de gestion Favoriser 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.
