The Morvan is a regional natural park of 195,000 hectares in the centre of Burgundy, straddling the four departments of the region.


The area is today covered with trees; 60% coverage for most sectors, and up to 80% around certain communes. Wood has always been an important product of the Morvan; in the 19th century huge trunks from the forest were floated down the rivers Yonne and Cure to Paris for use in the construction boom then underway. (See les flotteurs de Morvan.)
