The Houtland (Flemish for "Woodland") is a region in French Flanders which is a part of the French Westhoek, in the Nord department of France. In the region, like the rest of French Flanders, French Flemish is historically spoken but in decline.
In contrast to the name, a lot of the region is used for agricultural purposes.
