We study the propagation of electromagnetic fields in forest media in a frequency band between 100 and 300 MHz. We develop an exact coherent model in order to compute the electromagnetic field of a received wave after multiple scattering from the elements of the medium, in and outside the forest. We propose simplifications for the model of the forest and approximations for the electromagnetic method to reduce the computing time. We use and simulate a DORT based method to detect and locate a hidden target in the medium. We develop this method to adapt it to a real configuration and we apply it to measurements in anechoic chamber.
