The low quality of the wood (due to the hydromorphic nature of the soil) and the environmental and regulatory constraints of the site made the forest manager consider the site of low interest both for timber harvesting and for planting new afforestation, and thus facilitated their involvement in the project. It also made it easier to obtain the derogation from the simple forest management plan. The financing of the work proved to be an obstacle, but the owner unblocked the situation by agreeing to transfer the wood to the PNR, which was able to generate revenue from the sale. In addition, the total cost of the project was relatively low, which helped convince the financial partners.
