Élaboration d'un plan de gestion du patrimoine végétal des abords des canaux Toulousains

Abstract : A few years ago, the city of Toulouse decided it was going to grow into setting an example in matters of sustainable development. This implied using ''eco-management'', a maintenance method for green spaces which is meant to be better on economical, ecological and social standards. The city's territory is crossed by the ''canal des deux mers'', an exceptional site, part of which is registered as UNSECO world heritage. However, the trees flanking the canal from Sète to Castelnaudary, one of the key elements of the canal's image, are infected by the colored canker, a disease that usually kills a tree in a matter of months, and cannot be cured. No case of colored canker has been notified in Toulouse yet, but it seems it is inevitable that it will come someday. This document presents the elaboration of a management plan whose goal is to define both the proper management for the canal's bank and which measures should be taken to prepare for the canker's arrival. This study is constituted of a diagnosis which analyses qualitatively and quantitatively the canal's actual situation and concludes defining some management objectives. Follows a presentation of the different management tools created to reach those goals.
