In the Gascon language, Bosc means Forest. Bosc is located in Hagetmau on the edge of the largest forest in Western Europe, Les Landes.
Until the mid-19th century, the county of Les Landes was a huge marshy plain which the inhabitants, mostly shepherds, crossed on stilts. In 1857, the Land Reclamation act, instigated by Napoleon III, led to the mass planting of pine trees in order to drain the land and stop it from eroding. Nowadays, these trees cover more than a million hectares and are used for both their resin and wood. However, other varieties are also found alongside the pine, including several species of oak. Today, the Landes forest is Europe’s largest cultivated area of trees.
