Stratégies de valorisation de l'arbre et de la haie en élevage

Abstract : After having been relegated to the background in the agricultural landscape, trees outisde forest and hedges are now experiencing a renewed interest from breeders who are rediscovering its multifunctionality. The tree allows, in addition to many ecosystem services beneficial to animals and crops, to produce resources that can improve the autonomy of the farm by substituting inputs such as litter or fodder or a source of energy. A survey was conducted among 30 French breeders working to restore a place for tree ressources in their practices, in order to determine the different strategies they are eager to engage. 5 strategies have been identified based on the main objective of the farmer, the balance between his needs and his biomass production, the state of his resource, as well as the mode of management and felling of the trees. Mainly conditioned by the perception of the tree by the farmer, these strategies focus respectively on: the reintroduction of the tree by setting up innovative systems; the fight for its maintenance through associative dynamics involving the social fabric, the optimization of its multifunctionality by the complementarity of practices; its valuation as an input to the system; its exploitation with a view to economic diversification. Some dynamics of transition between strategies have been identified and bear witness of their relative stability.
