Description

While traveling between the villages Repanidi and Kontopouli take a look at the small forest with oak-trees, which is the only extensive natural wooded area on Limnos. Approximately 2,500 acres are covered by perennial oaks, which probably were part of an older natural forest, that was deforested so as to become grazing land and at the same time to supply the island with timber. Many birds are nesting in their branches and complement the rich bird life of the area, which is adjacent to the most important wetlands of the island.
