Is the owner of a wooded parcel a priority to purchase the wooded parcels contiguous to his?

The owner of adjacent wooded plots enjoys a preferential right when the land to be sold is classified in the Land Registry in nature woods and forests and has a total area of less than 4 hectares If several neighbors exercise their right of preference, the seller can freely choose his buyer.

Attention: if the municipality also has a plot adjoining the land for sale, it then enjoys a pre-emption right which overrides the preferential right of the adjacent owners.
