Abstract : Following the idea developped by I. Simon in his theorem of ramseyan factorisation forests, we develop a result of ``deterministic factorizations''. This extra determinism property makes it usable on trees (finite or infinite). We apply our result for proving that, \emph{over trees}, every monadic interpretation is equivalent to the composition of a first-order interpretation (with access to the ancestor relation) and a monadic marking. Using this remark, we give new caracterisations for prefix-recognisable structures and for the Caucal hierarchy. Furthermore, we believe that this approach has other potential applications.
