Attitude face au risque et décision de récolte des propriétaires forestiers privés français

Abstract : France has decided to increase its wood harvests in forests by roughly 21 million cubic meters by 2020. Since three-quarters of French forests are privately owned, it is essential to be aware of what determines harves-ting decisions by private forest owners if this goal is to be achieved. In particular, in a context where the risks associated with forest management are increasing, owners’ preferences in the face of risk could play a decisive role in their decision to harvest or not. We use survey data on the one hand to identify the deter-mining factors in harvesting decisions by French private forest owners and on the other to evaluate their pre-ferences vis-à-vis risks. Our main results show that French private forest owners tend, on average, to have an aversion for risk and that this aversion increases the probability of harvesting.
