French base rémanents

Dictionary entry: rémanents


English - Ireland
Posting this term here as it is not listed in the main dictionary entry: as a plural noun, rémanents apparently refers to woody debris left after trees fall or are cut down. One possible English equivalent is Coarse woody debris (CWD), but the text I am translating also uses rémanents to refer to plant cuttings which are not necessarily woody (coming from smaller flowering plants).

    Thank you for your message. As that sense doesn't exist on the French side, I'll pass it over to our French base and we'll see if @Lacuzon would like to add it.
