The Forest of Tronçais is a forêt domaniale comprising 10,600 hectares in the Allier, managed by the National Forests Office. Its oaks, planted by Louis XIV's minister Jean-Baptiste Colbert to supply the French Navy, constitute one of the principal stands of oaks in Europe.
Within the forest boundaries are the communes of Braize, Cérilly, Isle-et-Bardais, Le Brethon, Meaulne, Saint-Bonnet-Tronçais, Urçay, Valigny and Vitray. It is mainly made up of sessile oak. It also contains 130 ha of ponds and is deemed by many as the most beautiful oakwood in Europe.
