Its inhabitants are called Altiligériens.

Forests cover a lot of territory with species such as Les Epicéas, firs, pines for softwood conifers as well as hardwoods such as beech, oak, birch and some wild fruit trees (chestnut, cherry, apple).
Due to agriculture and livestock, Haute Loire has a lot of meadows, fields and pastures.
