Cultivated, multifunctional and integrated forest landscapes? An overview of the factors influencing forest management in the ‘Pontenx’ case study (Landes de Gascogne, France)

Abstract : The ‘Landes of Gascony’ area is embedded in a multi-scale of social, political and economic processes which could be studied at three levels (regional, national and European). This is all the more important to take into account that Gascony forest and its related activities are currently facing structural changes and rescaling process. Throughout its history , this region has underwent important socio-economic and landscape changes but forestry and its related industries have always adapted with valuating of different products and good derived from pine forest (pine-tapping, softwood, pulpwood and, nowadays, fuelwood and green chemistry). Recent changes suggest a multi-scale regulation that include but also extend well beyond the forest-based sector: storm damages (1999 & 2009), population growth with urbanization and new attractiveness of this region, emergence of energy issues and a more broad-based range of economic activities in rural areas. Along with sector trends, such key drivers lead toward a multiplication of -potentially contradictory- socioeconomic representations and uses regarding the Gascony forest. In this respect, ‘Landes of Gascony’ appears as a relevant complementary scale to analyse the ‘Pontenx’ case study and address INTEGRAL research challenges: the competition of diverse demands for multiple forest ecosystem goods and services under changing environmental, economic and social conditions.
