DU RURAL À L'URBAIN. INTÉGRATIONS, USAGES ET GESTIONS DE L'ARBRE DANS LES PAYSAGES DE LA MÉDITERRANÉE NORD-OCCIDENTALE.

Abstract : Starting out from the dual observation of the abandonment of proto-industrial activities in wooded scrub areas and the introduction some forty years later of Quercus ilex L. in an urban environment, this research work analyses arboreal heritage policies adopted in Montpellier (France), Firenze (Italy) and Valencia (Spain), to reveal the territorial dynamics involved in the statutory changes of trees, and of the evergreen “holm oak” in particular. The new ornamental and cultural functions that are assigned to this species, henceforth providing both an argument and an instrument for sustainable development, fit in with the original, nutritive and forestry functions, almost to the extent of masking them. While the tree, as it reveals successive territorial changes, stakes its claim among the privileged markers of Mediterranean landscapes, the holm oak takes on a role as a driving force behind new forms of territorial organisation in the north-western Mediterranean.
