Frequented by people with dogs

In the Reesinghe forest we find an alternation of beech forest, coppice forest of American oak and coniferous forest with old black pines. Birds that breed in and around the forest include black-headed, great spotted woodpecker and green woodpecker.
The Reesinghebos is located between Brugse Steenweg (north) and Koningin Astridlaan (N9 - south). To the west, the forest is bordered by the Oude Kasteeldreef, to the east by the backyards of the Rotsart de Hertainglaan.
The eastern part, about two thirds of it, consists of an older beech forest with a few larches and pedunculate oak. The shrub layer consists of rowan, holly and elder (at the edges). There is a limited amount of American bird cherry and we also see rejuvenation of the common maple on the southern edge. There are also advancing burrs.
The western part is a mixed forest with thicker Corsican pine and also beech and sweet chestnut. The American oaks along the Oude Kasteeldreef provide storage from seed and steam/cut down trees (coppice). In the shrub layer you will mainly find rowan.

I hope you like it
