The Garden is accessible through a 4km ride from Le Saint – Hubert Village.
Vallée d’Osterlog Endemic Garden is a 275 hectares of pristine forest located in the south-east of the island nestled in between Mountain Lagrave and Mountain Laselle of the Créoles Mountain Range.
Soils: The soil is composed of humic latosolic brown forest. The soils are dark brown to reddish brown silty clays or clays with weak file differentiation and friable throughout the solum although structural development is weak. They contain more organic matter (5%-7%) than the low humic latosols but silica and bases are more depleted. Iron and aluminum sesquioxides have been concentrated throughout the solum but no obvious individualisation of concretionary nodules has occurred. Generally manganese dioxide is absent.
