Gérer une forêt commerciale selon une approche intégrative: rêve ou réalité ? Le cas de la forêt de Steigerwald (Bavière, Allemagne)

Abstract : This article provides feedback on the experience of both integrative and adaptive management, carried out since 2005 on the 17,000 ha of a state forest in Bavaria. The State Forest Enterprise Ebrach manages a state forest dominated by beech in the Steigerwald region. In addition to about one million euros in annual prof- its, its management aims to optimize a wide range of ecosystem services and also to significantly increase the hosting capacity for forest biodiversity, particularly saproxylic species. After a general presentation of the forest and its history, the concepts governing its management are presented. Then, a detailed economic analysis quantifies the cost of this type of management. We hope that this article will inspire French foresters concer- ned about improving the sustainability of their management.
