It is situated primarily on slopes of a hill with a rounded peak, cut from the south by the Tarn River, and from the north by a small valley of the Runes creek.

Ecobal forest in France is located in the South, near the Mediterranean Sea, near Ruas.

The forest is located 9 km north of Florac in the region of Cevennes, on the southern foothills of Mount Lozère, in the area situated between the slopes of Bondon and the valley Haute-Vallee du Tarn (toward the gorge of the Tarn River / Gorges du Tarn). Due to its geographic location, forest is subjected to extreme climate variability depending on weather conditions and season. Forest stands growing in the described area result from reforestation conducted in 1985-1986.
