Le châtaignier en Périgord ou les trajectoires incertaines d'une ressource territoriale : un regard généalogique et exploratoire entre nature et culture

Abstract : Forest areas, somewhat neglected during the period of the "Trente Glorieuses", are experiencing renewed interest in favor with the ecological and energy transition, and social mobilization. Thus, they are at the heart the development of many conflicts and regarded as able to reconcile economic growth and ecological contribution, notably through mitigation plans to climate change. The maritime pine is a privileged specie in New Aquitaine. Benefiting from strong institutional support, a strong industrial fabric and several decades of research, the exploitation of this softwood tends to become a model at the expense of other silvicultural crops such as chestnut. The third French species after oak and beech, the chestnut is ubiquitous in the Dordogne and its fruits have long been the staple diet of the Périgourdins. But for several decades, observers seem to insist on the decline of this tree and predict an uncertain future. Deceiving, it is gradually replaced by the maritime pine. However, since the 1990s, some people have noted the emergence of a semblance of reorganization and modernization of the sectors. Through a dual temporal approach, this thesis analyses the past and present dynamics of the chestnut tree in Dordogne, details the strategies and actions carried out by the actors and the assets and pressures that impact the development of this resource, in order to evaluate prospects of this controversial object.
