The Last Ancient Forest in the South of France
Ancient forest growth soars overhead at the Parc St. Pons. It is said to be the last of the old growth/ancient forests in the South of France, fires having taken their toll on the rest of the old growth forests. These huge treens grow deep in a valley along a swift moving, spring fed river that keeps them lush, green and fire resistant year round. The trees grow so densely that little light reaches the forest floor and you can almost imagine that you are in the amazon or other exotic rainforest.
