The compulsory membership of the National Council for Land, Agricultural and Forestry Expertise (Conseil National de l’Expertise Foncière, Agricole et Forestière) guarantees the independence, the integrity and the training level of  its members..

This council is vested with disciplinary powers for arbitration of issues relating the professional ethics.

The title of forestry expert is protected by rural code. You can find the regulation of the forestry expert profession on the site :

** EFF :

Experts Forestiers de France, a professional association, in which the majority of approved forestry experts are members. It has the task of promoting and defending our trade.

E.F.F. takes care of the neutrality and the independence  of its members, necessary virtues for establishing confidence between proprietors and forestry experts.

E.F.F. organises the training of its members, an indispensable condition for the holding of the title of forestry expert.

A visit to the internet site of E.F.F.,, will give you additional information concerning the trade of forestry expert.



Activity zone


The management of a forest property can only be conceived in close proximity to the actuel forest itself.
The forests which are followed and managed by our office are basically in  the Burgundy region and its neighbouring departments (Loiret, Cher, Allier, Jura, Haute-Saône, Haute-Marne, Aube and Seine et Marne).

This activity sector, voluntarily restricted, allowed for a good knowledge of the area, the wood markets and the people involved in the forestry business.
