But is good to make this selection, I know that a big area in this forest is exploited and fortunately there is reserves.
The principal problem is, lower ages cutting cycles.

I have a measure for the 'Pilier', he had a girth of 1,45 m at 1,3 m in 1931.
The data come from the book write by the association 'Les amis de la forêt de Tronçais'(archive forest)
Nice if they have a monumental tree in each parcel, but because of the tree-growing cycle in some parcels the trees are only 10 years old and in others around 300 years. So the parcels are in very different phases and the monumental trees as well. Till now, monumental trees in the forest are always very old or large / tall specimens, I don't know if they want to declare trees of 10 - 30 years already monumental.
Sorry for this phrase.
I would write that the number total of the parcel is 442 and in all of them one tree will be preserved, therefore this will represent 442 remarkable trees.
And more because the reserves and the trees labeled represent already many specimens.
after that, so between 1690 and 1720.
The third reserve is in parcels 434, 435 and 436 in the southwest of the forest. This forest is now left as a total reserve were no trees are cut anymore.
Beside that there are about 22 remarkable trees, all oaks, wich all have an information plate.
I don't understand what you are writing about parcel 442, perhaps you can write it in French, because it is not clear if you write in the past, the present or the future and if you only mean one tree in parcel 442 or more.
I saw one Sequoiadendron, but it was not very impressive. At the roundabouts of the forest roads there are often planted a few Abies alba, but because of the relative dry and warm climate these do not grow very good. The Scots pine you mention is very large for the species, alas I did not see it.
The most interesting of the forest is the old culture of high quality sessile oak growing with long growing cycles of 250 years.
The area have already many old specimens and this objectif would try to protect the biggest and tallest trees.
They are also a few others species (big sequoia gig.C:6,../scots pine C:5m;H:35m/chestnut C:5m/H:16,5m/...
