OAKS CUT IN THE FOREST OF LOCHES

On February 4, 2011, the Vicard Cooperage invited customers and prospects to be witnessed a cut of oaks of a splendid piece acquired in the prestigious forest of Loches in Touraine.

The people present could discover a part little known of Vicard activity, in spite of its importance in the manufacture of barrels of quality. Pruning (action to cut the oak branches), cutting and unlading were explained in real situation and the assembly was impressed by the work of the pruner, real acrobat, like by the noise and the tremor produced by the oak during its felling.

With this occasion, the technique of
purchase on foot or “side of road” as well as the estimate and the choice of the oak parts were specified by the wood Manager of Vicard Cooperage. This last also presented the policy of the Group as regards grains, control of the purchases and self-sufficiency (today more than 90%).

The Forest National Office made us the honor to take part in this day and the presence of two of its members led to technical exchanges on the oaks and the management of the forests. This way, the spectacular side of this event was supplemented by a true teaching aspect.
