Oak forest from Dosul Fânațului
Another wonderful forest, this time a bit larger (108 ha), can be found nearby, in Dosul Fânaţului. It is located on the slopes with southern exposure, crossed on some places by stabilized riverbeds, at an altitude of 490-590 meters, on clay-maroon deposits.
The site is crossed by the old road that connected the towns of Făgăraş and Rupea during the Austro-Hungarian Empire (now abandoned, but relatively well preserved). And here, the natural structure is remarkably conserved, including various species such as hornbeam, field maples, bird cherry, European wild pear, small-leaved lime, field elm, beech, wildprivet, hawthorn, different types of spindle trees, dogrose, hazel meadow, dogwood, wayfaring tree or black elder.
Look for the bigger trees - up to 60-70cm in diameter and heights up to 23-25m.
