Climate and biodiversity issues were one of the focuses of His Majesty King Charles III’s state visit to France. In addition to the symbolic gestures of planting an oak tree in the gardens of the residence of the Ambassador of the United Kingdom and the President choosing Romain Gary’s novel Les racines du ciel as a diplomatic gift for the King, there were also plans for the King to visit Bordeaux University’s Forêt Expérimentale.
